In what sort of mood was I yesterday? The absolute best possible thing was Constructivism.

I have nothing constructive to add, but your pop always comments first, and so, i wanted to beat him to the font.

it is called Space Force Consctuction and it was painted in 1921 and it is super lovely face to face. It's by Liubov Popova, who's this cool commie constructivist woman, and it is part of this fab exhibit from the Tate that's currently at the Reina SofĂ­a.

Thank you for the information. Thank you also for the pun: fab (fabulous, fabricated, Fabian?).
