    Westward...

    psteiner Jun 21 '05 2

    So, I came home (houston Texas) for a month after graduation. A week ago I got back from the family road trip...Not your usual road trip in that half the people who went with us were not family...
    anyway, here's the awesome pictures of West Texas. There will be more later.

    -this is on a building Donald Judd bought and worked on. His father Clarence Judd always wanted to be an architect but never was able to do so. So Donald printed Clarence Judd, Architecture on 2 buildings in Marfa for his father

    -The 100 boxes...all are different, made from aluminum from the Reynold's Wrap company...Not welded, but fitted together...it's amazing how perfectly seamless every single box is

    -The Flavin lights are a permanent exhibit. They have been working on installing them since 1996 and finished in 2001. Turns out Judd and Flavin used to be best friends, but after a falling out they decided they hated eachother. Chinati Foundation had to wait until both were dead to put their works together...

      That is one sweet horny toad!

      Marfa is so awesome. Sadly the Times had an article a couple months ago about the influx of east coasters buying run-down adobes there and turning the place into another Santa Fe - did you get a sense of that while you were there?

      Nice pics, thanks.

      yeah, they ( the east coasters, and other crazy art folks) are known as the Marfa Mafia around there. It's funny, because they do stick out like a sore thumb, but it'll be really hard for them to change over Marfa, there are too many crazy people native to the area who live there and aren't leaving...My brother used to live in Alpine about 40 min. from Marfa and that place hasn't changed and they even have the big university there (Sul Ross) I think there are too many angry liberals, and radical progressives (politically speaking) to let anything happen to Marfa.
