few things are as charming to me as truly ruined clothes. thats why undercover was so great to me for awhile but not i just think it’s pretentious as hell but i think it can still be so romantic and lovely. this girl at fashion week had truly destroyed white platform sneakers on and i couldn’t stop staring at them because i hadn’t seen anything so beautiful in awhile. i liked it better than the clothes on the runway, her beat up grey shoes. so many stories to tell! i don’t let clothes go easily. i steal clothes from people i love shamelessly too. i am a collector of material memories. scuff marks mean i love you on clothes, if i steal your blazer it’s because i want to carry you with me when i’m cold.
*university voice* unfortunately… we have too much money… so we have to raise tuition so we can build a place to keep all the other money in… so sorry unavoidable
tbh i listen to habits probably too much
This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Untitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.
“Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”
