The orthographics of space

Hilary reports today on an installation she saw at the local art college. “Attic and Cellar” consists of a ramshackle farmer’s ladder ascending to a loft built out of grainy, distressed wood. Beneath the loft are gathered several plaster mock-ups of feed bags, painted in black and red, and a gaslight glows on the platform. The artist’s statement situates the project within the theories of “the philosopher Gustav Bouchelard.”
