Untitled (Current Atmospheric Conditions)

We had our first crit/group meeting today for the advanced studio class I'm taking and here is the piece that I presented.

Pretty good responses from the group and my prof:
-daylight diffused
-variation of opacity of the lines guides the eye
-optical vs illusory
-sequencing: relationship to simultaneity
-holding space: a conversation with the building
-height: activates you
-authoritative, fencing
-delicious (want to lick it)
-aware of the perception, questions it
-opponent-process effects
-feels sculptural
-frieze (architecture)
-illusory charge
-sublinguistic: a need to make them (why? what is this?)
-quality of time, the anonymity of the artist (back to the maker)
-incidental metaphor
-socratic cave?
-positive/negative flip
-hurts the eyes: optically pop out
-structure of looking
-the single panel might be viewed as artifact whereas the sequence is something else
