A conversation with Samara Lubelski

 

    We asked Samara Lubelski about the five parts of a day on planet Earth. Her responses included cherry orchards, nightclubbing, noir films and the invisible line between dreams and expectations.

    h Please tell me about each of these parts of a day.

    Try to forge the hours into constructions — a semblance of progression. Slowly, with the day’s descent, the loosely held controls pass to the forces of night.

    Morning

    McCabe and Mrs. Miller.

    Daytime

    The Long Goodbye.

    Evening

    Killing Of A Chinese Bookie.

    Twilight

    Le Samouraï.

    Nighttime

    Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors.

    h Tell me about a memory you associate with each one.

    Morning

    Coffee and cigarettes.

    Daytime

    Walking in the cherry tree orchard in South Germany. Sun dappled beauty. The essence of time in momentary stillness.

    Evening

    Playing music with the groups.

    Twilight

    Group bike riding in NYC. Someone was playing Kraftwerk’s Radio Activity on portable speakers. Everything got very quiet and present.

    Nighttime

    Teenage nightclubbing in NYC. No carding, no entry fee — a flowing show of great gigs and weirdos on display.

    h If your life was a single day, which part of it do you see yourself in? Which one do you fear?

    Morning

    Trying to ride the invisible line between the world of dreams and the world of expectations.

    Nighttime

    The realization that the line has not held.

    h Please rename or reconsider the five parts of the day to what you would have them be.

    Nighttime

    Emerald green. The sea of sleep.

    Twilight

    Misty pink. The soft cushion of descent.

    Evening

    Shades of grey. Shifting of the gears.

    Daytime

    Mod orange. Snap in for the ride.

    Morning

    Hues of beige and yellow. Prepare for reentry.

    Thank you.
