An explanation of the art -- which I'm not very interested in -- is here.

Your pictures are just getting mo better. Especially the second one, sorta like MC Escher in glass.

Either way both are pretty slick.

From the show blurb:
"The map depicts the seven continents of the world in an inverted fashion, mocking assumptions of political, economic, and cultural order, while emphasizing the importance of linguistic and visual choices in the creation of informational media. Because it situates South America and Africa as the visual center of the world, the map also poses old and new questions about geography and globalism."

What a novel concept, I'm all shook up.

I like the photos too.

BTW If anybody is in any way interested in learning how we got in to this financial mess... CSPAN3 is rearing their Milton Friedman

What kind of camera - and lenses - do you use?

AllenS said...

Did you lose, or break your fisheye lens? Not that I miss it, for a while there...

Is i just because I'm an ignorant redneck that I don't understand how hanging colored strips of plastic in a stairwell "questions—both cultural and architectural—about the relationship between the city and the museum"?

Your photo of the stairs was great Ann; unless you were also raising questions—both cultural and architectural—about the relationship between stairs and the mortals who use them?

An Edjamikated Redneck said...

That should be "raises questions". D'oh!

Michael_H said...

Ann, your photos are wonderful. I hope you will soon publish a book of your photos; I'd gladly buy the first copy. Thanks!

That looks like a Gene Davis freed from 2 dimensions.

I'd seen the vertical stripes of color from the outside: Nothing special. It sure looks a lot more interesting from the inside!

Rose, click on the photo. Flickr opens. Look to the right. The blue words. Nikon D50. Click other properties. A world of information opens. Most items clickable. For instance, you can see how popular the camera is on Flicker. You can compare to other Nikons, read reviews of cameras, ets. Or, click on Cameras all and get comparisons of all cameras used on Flickr for which there is information. You can arrange by Manufacturer or by most popular. This is a rich resource.

Photoshop eliminates a lot of the photo's meta data, if the "save for web" selection was made when the photo was saved, so sometimes all the information on a particular photograph isn't available.

Sigh. Curators of yet another so-called art museum have unlearned the distinction between art and ornamentation.

KimH said...

When I take photos of art/installations, it usually ends up at least vaguely dissatisfying, because it feels like I'm piggybacking on someone else's work.

The second photo here easily stands on its own as something new. It's so good in so many ways. I'm curious about how many shot versions it was culled from. It's my favorite Althouse picture of all time.

Kudos.
