the journey

Post image for the journey

the latest exhibit to go up over in building 543 might be one of my favorites  to date.  it’s impossible not to notice it when you walk in… back in the far corner by the cafeteria, a strange tower appeared last week… upon closer investigation it is revealed to be a tower of books, carefully stacked to form a rainbow of color with their spines.

“arguments #6C” by tom bendtsen.

the opposite wall displays more eye-catching sculptures like these:

“so long and thanks for all the fish…” by joanna platt

and then this appeared above the elevator next to our café…pillows of yarn and crochet hanging like icicles from a dr. seuss book.  this blew me away – it’s called “heaven” by melissa haims.
