Drawing Restraint

Three more impressions of the Oculus Tower of Mario Botta, the architect of the 1995-wing of the SFMOMA.
Two minimalistic details and the remaining of the installation “Drawing Restrain 14” by Matthew Barney.

■ The main picture shows one of the openings connecting the turret with the other parts of the museum. A simple rectangle opening that I also used for taking the picture of the first workshop of my previous upload.
I was fascinated by the woman looking at her ❤ beloved IPHONE and the remains of a scribbled drawing next to and above the opening.

■ In the first workshop you can see the whole drawing. The entire installation is the making of this drawing in this difficult circumstances.
The artist is Matthew Barney and the title is DRAWING RESTRAINT 14. It was installed in 2006.

■ The second workshop shows another opening in the Oculus Tower. I think this beautiful and simple opening in the curved wall of tower don’t need further recommendation. It is just beautiful in its minimalistic, graphical shape.
