I Looked & Looked by Magali Duzant

Tonight I attended a launch party at Field Projects for I Looked & Looked an artist book by Magali Duzantpublished by our friends at Conveyor Editions. This one night event was purposefully held on the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the night this project began.

I Looked & Looked draws its title from a line in a love letter Alfred Stieglitz wrote to Georgia O’Keeffe in 1923. In it Stieglitz describes a full moon over Lake George. By chance, O’Keeffe described the same moon in a letter she wrote to Stieglitz from York Beach on the very same night.

In 2012, Duzant discovered this exchange prompting her to ask twenty artists to describe the coming full moon of October 29th. On that night Hurricane Sandy struck, leading to unexpectedly differing accounts of a single sky. I Looked & Looked combines these stories together with Duzant’s own photo-based reflection on our shared moon and it’s potential as a as site for human interconnectedness.
