— Reflections at the California Academy of Sciences —
(San Francisco, CA)

February 28, 2010 – It's been a busy week. I'm cleaning up, cleaning out, and reorganizing my studio while at the same time beginning to shift some of my work into a new detached studio behind the house. In less than two weeks we'll be flying off to Jerusalem for 10 days so I am also trying to whip the house into shape for the incoming housesitters. Believe me, I'd much rather be doing art than cleaning.

Below are some photos I took awhile back at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. These are not montages, they are not double exposures; they are "straight" photographs taken within the Academy, a huge (and hugely) impressive "green" building designed by the famous Italian architect, Renzo Piano.

So what exactly are you looking at?
These are views of an interior 4-story glass dome that houses the Rainforest Exhibit. I was intrigued by the massive mirror-like reflections, the ambiguity of interior and exterior space, the interplay of shadow and light, metal and glass, nature and people. As visitors move through the exhibit each moment offers a unique visual experience.
