As we first walked through the hall of so many other beautiful photos displayed, I couldn’t stop staring at this one photo. So, obliviously it’s my favorite out of all of them. It reminded me of the Project#3 with the different values, Narrow, broad, high and low. This picture mostly shows to be a low/narrow value (even though you can see a bit of green from the grass but whatever). It doesn’t seem to have the exact focal point because of the scattered coins, words/numbers and grass but I didn’t think the photographer wanted to show the exact focal point. I can’t assume in what he wanted to show. Also, I loved how the photo is zoomed in closely to show the dramatic impact on the tombstone.
To be honest, I enjoyed this exhibit more than the Zine exhibit. It had a bunch of interesting and fun things to look at. I really connected with the chains that were hung up. That was the first thing I saw and felt the meaning. I was trying to read the info about it, but it was on the floor and it was sort of dirty. So I couldn’t read it that well. I like how it was shiny and beautfil with some huge rusted chains all tangled together. Sort of in a pattern I would say.
Anyway, as we went on with the tour, I was intrigued with the new information I heard about the place, but I don’t know if I really be in that part of the department. But I was excited to be so close to that type technology and also the green screen! I don’t have much to say about it because like I said in the beginning of this paragraph, I wasn’t that into it. But it was an awesome experience.
Finally, went to see Professor Spevack’s work. I was stunned by the look of it inside & out. Sadly, I’m claustrophobic, so, I couldn’t experience staying in there in the dark and listen to the sounds more cleverly. But I got to go through it by having the door open with Professor Rosen. I was so calm with the door open because having it open helps me remember that I’m not sitting in a small space. I still got to listen carefully and was able to draw what I heard. I felt like I was in the middle of nature. Peaceful and calm.
This trip was amazing 🙂 I can’t for the other ones in the future.
