Like most artists, I’m very opportunistic when it comes to what I read, see and observe. I’m always looking, trying to see beyond the obvious. I absorb everything and take what works for me, whatever seems important or quirky, I collect all of the fascinating loose ends and squirrel them away, let them incubate until they reveal their meaning. Like alchemy, there’s an element of time here, of waiting, of sensing and trusting a process. Again, that burying of something in order for it to emerge as something else.

Rachel Lehmann shares her best travel tips with the wsj. Take a look at her exclusive interview, here: http://goo.gl/XKY32R 

Q: Best travel experience?RL: Three years ago around Christmas, I was feeling worn down and tired. I traveled to the ancient Buddhist temple Borobudur [in Indonesia]. On the first day, very early in the morning, I started climbing the mountain and I felt a relief. The higher I climbed, the simpler the temple became and the clearer it became that I needed to be more accepting of myself. I did it for five days. It changed the way I look at myself. It made me understand that I work much more than other people do, but I do it for my own fulfillment, and I don’t want to live my life a different way.

New on nowness, watch an excerpt from Alex Prager’s Face in the Crowd starring elizabethbankshttp://goo.gl/yaPJO 
"I’ve always had a strong interest in crowds; I had been wanting to shoot crowds for years, but I wasn’t trying to just re-enact crowds that we’ve seen before, I was trying to create a staged world for these crowds to live in. I wanted to construct crowds that brought the feel of the cinematic, a manufactured world, and meld them with reality."– Alex Prager
View more of Prager’s video work in Total Art: Contemporary Video on view through October 12th at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
