Spencer Finch

I attened Spencer Finch's lecture in the Student Commons Theater on Thursday at 2 pm.

I was (and I think everyone) was amazed by his painstaking efforts to reproduce exact color of light in his work.

Even measure color of the night sky, painting it with mars black, voilet, cobalt, white, measureing that and creating a light blulb instillaton made to look like the molecle of the exact color.

My two favorite peices of his were 1. the colored solor powered hanging lights made to represent the stars in our galaxy and 2. his rorschah images of colors he'd seen in his dreams.

I generally don't look into highly conceptual artists, but I liked his thoughts on memory and 'seeing'.
