Haunted by the Living: Moore Inside Out

Late last night, like just about everyone else I know, I was immersed deep in Moore Inside Out, the Free Sheep Foundation’s “architectural intervention” at the Moore Theatre.  Then I furiously pounded out my reaction for PubliCola.net, the new online newspaper begun by Josh Feit, former news editor for The Stranger:

Moore Inside Out …represents an interesting shift in focus [for Free Sheep] from the ecstasy of ephemerality to the slow-burning nostalgia of a living monument.  Like the Bridge Motel, the Moore Theatre is full of ghosts, and even a few unpleasant truths…  But it is also full of countless beautiful moments past, present and future.  It feels good to pay homage to an old friend who isn’t dying for a change.
