FHSU Track + Field

This elegant complex is the FHSU Track + Field facility in Hays, Kansas–architecture by GouldEvans.

And I want to address the controversy now before it explodes into an embarrassing scandal: The grass you see in these photos is in fact Liberty, MO grass from the campus of William Jewell College.  And from two years ago.  Thought I’d fess-up because I’m sure somebody will recognize it and go apoplectic on me.  Then the phone starts ringing off the hook and the next thing you know the media are tramping all over my lawn…….

This is the latest in my ever-expanding Open Series.  One of which–by the way–was included in Fraction Magazine’s 9th anniversary issue.  This pile of former trees was cleared to continue route 171 southward in Kansas as a duel lane highway.

Added a new image to the “Open” series.  This is not in Syria or Afghanistan but Hays, Kansas.  Not sure if it was hit by a tornado or a wrecking ball.  Maybe both…  See the rest of the series HERE.

A Break from Travel Photography

I can’t put this series to bed.  Like looking for sea shells, it triggers an obsessive-compulsive response.  See the rest of the “Painted” series HERE.

Biennale Update

The list of 19 Collateral Events at the Biennale Architecture 2016 was announced yesterday, you’ll find Time Space Existence listed on page 4.

And an update:  My photos have been shipped off; Giulia with the GAA Foundation tells me they are released from Italian Customs and have arrived successfully in Venice.  And just so you know not a single detail of the adventure will be go unreported:  I have decided on a paint color for the wall they will hang on:  RAL 7005 “Mouse Grey”.
