Bauhaus, Berlin

Had a very interesting visit to the Bauhaus Museum. Unfortunately you were not permitted to take photos. I found the section on architecture particularly interesting.

Joseph Beuys, Tallow

Hamburger Bahnhoff

'a dead space of a concrete construction for a pedestrian tunnel [filled] with animal fat. The sensless urban construction was to transformed with the healing substance. Fat, a source of energy for the body, was used as a positive substance to rescue a cold, wounded space.'

Really interesting concept and outcome. Bringing together two different elements - an industrial space with a natural material, a cold, empty hole with a thick, once warm substance.

Really like this piece. LOVE the presentation - especially the small pieces on the wall. image + text pieces, using typewriter style font which gives the work a documentational feeling. I really love the idea of encasing these behind perspex/glass, secured with pins. This is a really interesting display idea, one I could apply to my own text/coding.

Architectural drawings, various artists

Hamburger Bahnhoff, Berlin

Love these minimal and linear drawings - they convey space really effectively with few lines, and have a mapping quality to them.

A curious piece of work. I dont really like the overall appearance of the piece, but found this particular element to it interesting; the labeled jars of un-identified liquids. I find again the documentational/archiving aspect to the work interesting, bringing to mind my archiving of collected plant ashes.

Really interesting architectural small-scale sculpture created out of small rectangles of cardboard.

Really effective and interesting piece of work - A mass grid of framed pieces of work; photos and code-like images - surrounding vitrines encasing stacks of papers containing more information. I find the display of the work - its ordered, precise, formulaic + archival style really appealing, along with the graph paper images with curious coding written on them. I found this interesting most of all as it is relevant to my own practice in the way that recording findings, often through coding is of paramount importance to the development of my work. This is what these images make me think of - a document/record/coding of some sort. I like how through framing and presenting on the wall in mass they become a piece in their own right.

Really interesting works - Look exactly like lenghts of rock, with perfect circular outlines carved in on one end. I find the relationship between the jagged, imperfect edge of rock and the perfect circle an interesting juxtaposition. Another interesting element to this work is the fact that the pieces or ‘rock’ are  resting on bits of pallette.. normally a material used for storage and transportation, but in this case chosen as a worthy display mechanism.

Really interesting textural pieces made from a build up of multiples. I like the fact the colour palette has been kept to just white.
