In case you ever wondered, this photo about sums up what it's like to work at a university that teaches artists.
What you are seeing is a 'crit' or a critical review of one's peers of a sculpture project. The sculpture in this case consists of an 18 inch diameter tree, sawed into four sections that are each four feet long. The log is tethered to a TV set by red yarn.
In case you're wondering, I have NO idea what it's about.
Shockingly, it's not the most abstract thing iIve seen here this week.
