It’s ALIVE!!! (Part III: Equilibrium)

March 2, 2011

Fischli & Weiss, image from 'A Quiet Afternoon' series.

Phase III of our little obsession with the work of Fischli and Weiss emulates the graceful sculptures of their photo series A Quiet Afternoon (currently on exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago).

The challenge here is to foster a sense of both structural and compositional tension while maintaining an attractive material palette. Joy of joys! Tension is at the core of my interest in architecture, my intellectual project, so to speak. Perhaps I should post my manifesto one of these days…

In any case, here’s my whack at having a quiet evening in the makeshift photo studio I call the attic.

This piece entitled 'Lime Jail'.

Thank goodness for Grandpa's tools.

P.S. Here’s a link to the NewCity review of the Fischli and Weiss show (and the source of the first image above): linklinklink

    lime jail is a fitting title

      Yes, because the lime cannot get out unless he fashions a small shovel out of a spork and digs his way out which will be futile because he is in a jar and everyone knows you need to fashion a prison hammer to get out of a glass jail.
