Dear colleagues,

Earlier today, Thatcher Littlefield, preparator at the college museum (copied here) swiftly and beautifully installed the Henry Simonds’Global Impact image for McCardell Bicentennil Hall and its label explaining how it is but one part of a globe-encompassing work. The image is right on axis of the corridor through which one enters the building from the parking lot, and provides a compelling, target-like, visual terminus to that long corridor. 

Attached are three photograph: one from far away, one from a bit closer, and one from pretty close.

Happy holidays!

All best,

and Paris! (signage in French!)

Our balls are going global!

In a long planned effort, this piece, Global Impact—which is a portfolio of Sphaeralogical motion capture images—is finally being distributed around the world.

Very excited and grateful to Middlebury College for this acquisition.

Hey Folks,

I just learned that my high-school art Teacher, Mark Winslow Potter, was integrating Super-Balls into his work as early as 1982.  This man was a inspiration to me and helped me to push through my self-conscious blocks and find new ways of seeing.  I swear that I never knew of this work, nor had seen it.  I love that - almost 30 years later! - I found similar inspiration in these amazing spheres.
