To Infinity (in Art) and Beyond in "Pacific Standard Time"
As promised, here are bits of the exhibit "Everyman's Infinte Art" at Chapman Collage by Harold Gregor, a repeat of the installation in 1966. In 1966, no one saw the art since the campus was closed for winter break. But the instructions and materials list (which appeals to the engineer in me) were available, so that EVERYMAN can recreate it at ANYTIME at ANYPLACE and the possibilities to arrange ensembles that "suggest an infinite continuum" are INFINITE.
I agree that this isn't EVERYMAN's cup of tea, but I really enjoyed the stacked stryrofoam cups, the line of overlapping black sheets of construction paper... and my absolute favorite: the shinny rings of joined vent pipe elbows.
