Studio III architects’ Hero Wednesday: CHANCE

Leave a comment

We, no doubt, spend most of our lives preparing for something whether we know it or not, be it school, our work, parenthood, sports, reading, …being….
A huge and mostly invisible aspect of our lives and what we become…or don’t become is….chance.
The Artist is our culture’s mechanism for looking at ourselves. The artist is one way we we can ask the unanswered questions of life…like what role has chance played in my life?…how did I get here?…my god what have I done?! (sorry couldn’t resist the Talking Heads’ David Byrne quote)

Christian Boltanski, one of the most famous artists of our time, has an exhibit in Sydney Australia that attempts to make YOU think about chance, destiny, time, and the events of your life….”what if”, suggests that anything is possible, or at least an endless deep sea of questions…or not. What does it do for you? Check out the videos and article!
