  1. Excellent lecture, great to Jeanne's work and the incredible skill in making her sculptures.
    Decay in a wonderful manner. Thanks Academy
    Good questions at the end too.

  2. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
