Tomorrow Lu and I will be Stepping Out of the Box for two weeks to continue our search for new ideas and places and objects (in Paris and Berlin particularly). And soon after, it’s very likely that some images will appear in my new Looking Boxes. Stay tuned!
My photo here in our living room invites my mind to develop it into a new Looking Box.
That living room wall and ceiling have works (pictured) by favorite artists/designers: Charles and Ray Eames (the hanging paper “The Toy”, 1951, and a portion of its original box on the left in the photo). And a 1970s photo of Beauvais Cathedral by Alice Wingwall, and an oil painting (2006) by Jesse Wood.
Below is my 9 x 6 Looking Box, inspired by these images—first shown in front of Alice’s Beauvais image and then hanging on a wall.
This is the first Looking Box of our New Year!
