Jason Hirata @ Violet Strays

I'm really liking the online gallery Violet Strays, the latest project by Serrah Russell and Alyssa Volpigno. Each week a different artist will be showcased, beginning with inaugural artist Robert Yoder. This week's artist is Jason Hirata. There is no archive...just like shows in real life, if you miss them, that's it. So make sure to check out this nod to temporality.
Everything is wandering, rootless.
When a stray idea shows up on your
you’re obliged to restart
the engine, let it warm up, and
take off to the next destination.
You don’t have to take these strays
in, they don’t want your comfort.
To just pass by as if the whole
ordeal was a fading afterimage
is the only dream of the violet strays.
