Muschamp on Gehry's Disney Concert Hall

Now imagine a moon apple: a hollow sphere of lunar light. Somebody hands you a knife and says, ''Cut!'' How many shapes can you make? Peel a ribbon. Carve out squares of curving surfaces, concave and convex. Change the dimensions. Turn some slices inside out. Tweak. Stretch. When you're done, compose the pieces into a flowering cabbage. Then into a cabbage rose. Rearrange. Magnify. Reproduce the contours with large panels of stainless steel etched to a soft matte finish. Jump in and soar.

The technique is Cubist. No seamless image reveals the whole. Disney Hall must be assembled within the mind piece by piece as you approach and walk around it. A Surrealist ethos also suffuses the design: the imagineering impulse of Disney as well as of Magritte. Pumpkin into carriage, cabbage into concert hall, bippidi-bobbidi-boo.

anyone want to co-curate an online monochrome show ? (this one is pete from bostons avatar - he has received compliments for the color intensity).

colour with use-value.

My selection for the online monochrome show would be the illustrations accompanying this review of a James Turrell "patch of sky framed by square hole in ceiling" piece. The reviewer, Houston artist Bill Davenport, "simulated" the sky with solid color rectangles. (But shouldn't they be getting darker as night falls?)
