— 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.
