SCAD and sea

A second day in Savannah, and more art - especially at SCAD - the Savannah College of Art and Design, which had some terrific small shows and installations.  Just opened was a room of Caroline Herrera fashion designs - above - but more interesting than this by far, to me, was the Carrie Mae Weems show, and some works in ballpoint pen - huge works - by Gamaliel Rodriguez - that managed to be both abstract, and to show, somewhat abstractly, military installations.  

Earlier in the morning, we'd been to Tybee Island - much grey Atlantic - and a good underpier perspective.

In turn, this receding perspective prepared us for Daniel Arsham's Wall Excavation - holes in thick styrofoam, in human outline receding to abstract space.

Arsham also had a Selenite Eroded Broken Figure, here being contemplated by Alice;

and there were some fascinating Cornelia Parker pieces - including two that played around with Rorsasch blotches, and with poison and antidote - what she's used in the one below is rattlesnake venom and black ink, and on top of that, antivenom and white ink ...

Back to the Tybee pictures, and, swivelling round under the pier, here's a sunbather.
