Hello. Thank you for the encouraging comments on my last posts. Today has been a good day; a good crit, a good meeting with my theory professor, and all-around good vibes. The "big game" between Harvard and Yale is coming up this Saturday, and I'm going, so I'm happily anticipating that as well. If Keith is reading this, I PROMISE I will get all my sections and elevations done, and a model, for Monday. My beau has been in London for 2 weeks and he's returning tomorrow and wants to go to the game. It's in Boston. He's a Yale alumnus. (If I think I can't finish my work, however, I won't go.)
Below are some images I took in the A&A. The first batch is "found art" images, some dating back to the building's construction.
A wall in the ladies' room:
Another ladies' room wall: (the left eyebrow is actually a hole in the concrete)
Yet another ladies' room wall. I drew over the words scratched in the glass because they were illegible on the original image.
It's not like I'm in the bathroom all the time, but when one's in studio 18 hours a day, you do have to use the facilities occasionally.
This is from the hidden stairwell bridging the 4th and 5th floors. It caught my eye because it's painted around a deformation in the concrete.
There are several severely beaten up plaster reproductions in the main stairwell.
These are embedded in the wall of the main stairwell. Is it Rudolph's hand? Or that of the guy who poured the concrete? Or of Kent Bloomer (our resident czar of ornament)?
I wonder what was removed from this spot.
Natural beauty. I gave one of these to a guy once right before he broke up with me. I really wish I had kept it for myself.
This is the gallery, during one of the school's fabulous receptions that featured unlimited martinis. Dry, of course. Bob only drinks them dry.
A membrane in the exhibit, which is called, "Light Structures."
Sample joints from the exhibit. (It's a boon of copy-able details!)
This was also in the exhibit, the ground zero submission from Vinoly et al. It seemed jarring somehow in this context. Or maybe it's just jarring.
Now, I have to make some corrections. I once mentioned a secret society called Wolf's Head. Turns out it's really called Wolf's Claw. Also, my friend Dawn did not like the picture I posted of her in the elevator, so she's supplied me with another one. Here is Dawn presenting her 3-D forms project from first semester. This is the first thing she ever welded. Isn't it great?
