Disaster Averted

December 10, 2008

Wow.  Today has been crraaazzyyy.  At all… 4 of my jobs…  An unpleasant day in the office playing clean-up after others, paired with the fear of losing this installation (or giving up important parts of it) and a great lunch date with a friend I haven’t seen in a while, followed by the opening of the Harvard Ceramics Show and Sale, which was shockingly lovely and required the bleeding of cash, followed by surprise dinner out, interrupted by FABULOUS conversation with Dan Borelli, who is in charge of designing the Arsenal show and ensuing excitement over new ideas, now to be followed by more office work since I wasn’t willing to stay late to finish my renderings, to be followed by some window work (assuming I’m still alive by then). 

Longest day ever.

Maybe Disaster

December 10, 2008

So I just received an e-mail from some of the people at the gallery, in response to my endless nagging about finding a time to meet to discuss the installation, saying they had no idea I intended to hang the piece from the ceiling and they’re not sure it’s even possible.  I was floored by this response…  We’ve been sending e-mails back and forth discussing the location of the piece, and I thought we were all on the same page but apparently we are very far off…  Whenever anyone said “hang,” I assumed they meant hang from the ceiling, and they assumed I meant hang on the wall…  Wow.

I’ve responded clarifying that I need to hang these from the ceiling so I guess I just have to wait and see what they say.  Hopefully we can work something out…  Wow.  Did anyone out there think I was going to wall-mount these?  I mean, I know I left all the technical information about HOW I wanted to install the piece out of the proposal so that certainly didn’t help, but I didn’t realize I was this unclear…  Thoughts anyone? 

Slightly freaked out…  Trying to keep the panic under control…

Jumping ahead in terms of the sequence of the project, but seems appropriate to show in light of today’s events…
