Aperture


This view to green is through the portals in Nancy Holt's sculpture, the very literally named "Stone Enclosure: Rock Rings" on the Western Washington University campus. The sculpture itself recalls something along the lines of Stonehenge or other monuments-as-celestial-maps. I may have to visit again on one of the Solstices to see if I can spot a Druid.

We are out of town until July 15, roughing it backwoods-style near Tonasket, Washington. If you already know where Tonasket is without cheating and googling it, you should win some sort of prize, since it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere. We will return with mosquito bites, sticky kids, lots of empty beer bottles, and hopefully some groovy memories and photos to share.

  1. First off, love the title! Very appropriate! Second, I am mesmerized by this photo. My eyes keep traveling down the center and then around the edges and then down the center again. Well done!

  2. Let's both pretend that I said what Rachel said. Great sculpture, great shot. No offense, but I am not overly jealous of your vacation; I'm a creature comforts kind of guy . . .

  3. The stone texture is amazing. And I so agree with Rachel.
    No clue about Tonasket here, but I wish you great weather and friendly mosquitos anyway!
