Here’s what Created the Scarlet Path of Light

Silent Sunday’s Post was a red (correction SCARLET)path of light reflected onto the sidewalk at Ohio State University campus. Today I photographed what created the path of light from yesterday’s post.

  “Not only was the RPAC (Recreation Physical Activity Center) a landmark but it is notorious for its “Scarlet Walkway” connection the RPAC to the Physical Activity and Education Services building.  The walkway adds a flow to building that allows students to go between the buildings without having to cause chaos on the sidewalks.  The Scarlet walkway adds continuality to the façade of both buildings.”

Walking to the Sky: GUEST BLOG

Photographed and written by friend /houseguest Shuey

Pittsburgh, Carnegie U Pole Art

“Walking to the Sky” by Carnegie Mellon University alumnus Jonathan Borofsky

The sculpture was inspired by stories his father used to tell him about a friendly giant who lived in the sky. A father and son in each story would ascend  into the sky to talk to the giant. In this sculpture a father and son along with another onlooker can be seen observing a number of people walking up the 100’ tall pole to the sky.

Borofsky describes this work as “. . . a portrait of all of humanity rising upward from the earth to the heavens above – striving into the future with strength and determination. Ultimately, this sculpture is a symbol for our collective search for wisdom and awakened consciousness.”

Definitely worth seeing.

CMU Campus Lights and Shadows at Night

Waiting for Steve to pick me up in the turnaround, I saw the pattern on the concrete.  I had just viewed Waiting for Superman. I was in a good discussion group after the film.  You can read an editorial piece by Tony Norman from the Post-Gazette my friend V told me about. Lots to think about.  There wasn’t much in it that was hopeful or positive, especially when it comes to public education.  In fact , it was downright depressing to me.There are a ton of reviews at Rotten Tomatoes if you want to see the splats, too…. But getting back to the patterns of light and shadow on the sidewalk while I was waiting for Steve….

Shadow patterns on the concrete from the lights at CMU.
Looked like a good target for a spaceship landing.
