It’s ALIVE!!! (Part III: Equilibrium)
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.
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
