1467 tanks.... you take one down pass it around 1466 tanks on the wall
well - not that you were holding your breath - but here it is ! all the tanks in their glory glory.
wanna see some more views?
straight on [don't you love the reflection in the floor?]
detail... so you can see the shadows [and that they really are felt!]
and my favorite view:
standing at both ends you can really see the curve of the wall.... heh heh. this installation's special unplanned bonus. all installations have to have a unplanned bonus... right?
here's a nice shot of marin camille hood's work
embroidered lovelies of not so pretty things. [i don't have to explain why i like these right? and marin and i are both alums of the same grad school!] all the imagery comes from a field book on how to dress your deer. you can see the technique [if you aren't squeemish] here .
i think the absolute best part of this installation was all the help i had. giant thanks to the crew at the gallery :: sophie, daniela [who used a drill and the top step of a ladder for the first time!], laura, sabrina and matt. could not have been done with out you guys. and i'm not used to relying on other folks. it's also been really great to see students come in and react to the work. it's a different audience... and i really like it. also a giant thanks to faith who curated the show and made it all happen.
the show is up through April 16th the SFSU student gallery if you are inclined to take a peek.
i've been up since 5 this morning. why you ask? because tomorrow i go on a holiday. spring break is here and i am literally out of here. but crits, grades, syllabi, packing and cleaning had to be done by tonight.... i'm really looking forward to some time away. a minute to collect my thoughts so that the second i return i can start to work in the studio. 2 big projects in the works.
i won't be posting here - or reading anything online while i'm away - so i will miss you!!! see you in april! [already??]
