Frank Gehry‘s Stata Center on Vassar Street in Cambridge

Week 1.
Clouds Over Stata

I took this photo back in 2006 with an old point and shoot that only took pictures at 72 dpi, but it’s still a shot I like and was reminded of it this weekend when I saw a similar shot by another photographer, Asine Storer, who I just met as she was also doing a booth at the Melrose Arts Festival.

I didn’t do much in the post edit other than to lighten it up in PS3 by adjusting the exposure and using the Curves tool.

Here’s the original:

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. That building is not far from my house and every time I walk by I take another photo, and yours is a great one. Have you ever tried to turn it into a quilt or other artwork?
