Measuring the Universe.

I hadn't heard of artist Roman Ondák's 2007 installation Measuring the Universe until last month, but I wish I'd been in New York at the time to see it. In it, a thick streak of black forms a ring around a white room - a closer look reveals that the mass is made up of thousands of markings indicating the names and heights of museum goers. (The date of the visit is recorded, too.) What a beautiful idea.

Lastly, links for Monday, just because:
-"Sorry I'm late, but I didn't want to come."
-I'll eat anything covered in flowers. (Related: mango with wild roses, acacia fritters.)
-I conducted an interview last week with Noah Bernamoff, the New York restauranteur behind the wonderful deli Mile End, and the newly-opened Black Seed Bagels. You can read it on Conde Nast Traveler, here. Have a wonderful start to the week!
