1. AMAM In Depth: Installing "Windmills: Because Every City Deserves to Be Called Utopia"


    from Allen Memorial Art Museum / Added

    117 Plays / / 0 Comments

    During August of 2014, the Allen Memorial Art Museum installed the 'thread drawing' "Windmills; Because Every City Has the Right To Be Called Utopia" by the Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa. To create the work, dozens of pins are inserted into the wall, using the artist’s template as a guide. Thread is then wound around the pins to create the lines of the drawing. Despite Windmills’ monumental size, the resulting three-dimensional drawing appears fragile and evanescent. Thread lines shift and disappear based on one’s viewpoint, while even less-tangible shadows of the composition are projected onto the wall behind. Narrated by Denise Birkhofer, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Kendall Christian AMAM Head Preparator, and Michael Reynolds, Assistant Preparator.

                  Wedge takes its name from a microtonal tremolo that opens outwards during the first section of the piece. Surrounding this migrating tremolo is a growing complexity of grace note and gesturally intricate secondary materials. The layering of these materials and the performer’s ability to grapple simultaneously with the fabric of the piece creates an inconsistent and “wedge-inspired” balancing act.

                    from Oberlin Financial Accessibility / Added

                    Oberlin college has decided to pass a new policy on financial aid without consulting students, reducing financial aid for students who eat or live in OSCA / have cheaper meal plans / live off campus / etc. This has huge implications for who is able to attend this school, especially because any savings garnered by working in a coop, eating less CDS meals, and living off campus will be negated by smaller financial aid packages. Many of us worry that we will no longer be able to attend Oberlin because of this. We are unwilling to accept this change. This is just one of the many ways this institution actively hinders its own accessibility and demonstrates its lack of commitment to low income students. #AllRoadsLeadToDebt
