Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

When We Build, Let Us Think That We Build Forever

From the show’s flyer: “‘When We Build…’ is a multimedia exhibit featuring St. Louis artists focusing on the intersection of natural and manmade environments. The exhibit presents a poetic view of the world that surrounds us and our effect on it.”

Arriving at the exhibition is a little confusing unless you’ve really researched these artists and/or what the show is about. Even so, it took me a few moments to put two and two together, and to figure it all out. I even nearly missed the main gallery area entirely, as it appeared to me to be just a doorway that one of the artists was using to fill up five-gallon buckets of water for a piece. If you are more familiar with the Luminary, then it probably won’t be a problem, but to anyone going for the first time, it’s the door on the bottom all the way to the east of the building on Reber Place. In any case, I was overall impressed with how the artists handled the concept, and it is evident that there are a lot of talented individuals working under that roof. More pics after the jump.

All Nikon D50 with Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Lens attached.
