Last week, our class went on a trip to the Institute of Contemporary Arts at the University of Pennsylvania. We went to the ICA to see photography and other work by Barbara Kasten. Her work was different from most photography that we usually look at in class. Her most popular work is made of abstract sculptures that she builds in her studio, which she photographs using colorful lighting. She also had beautiful examples of cyanotypes, which we will be experimenting with in class soon. After, we walked around the campus of Penn, which was very nice. We had many questions about college life. Sometimes it's nice to leave school for a day to explore the world around us in our own city.
