Visual Critiques, done in response to the work of colleagues, are opportunities to enlarge experience of disparate aesthetic languages. Shabnam is an Iranian sculptor in the first year MFA group. Her piece was a multi-storied stack of cardboard boxes with a viewing window cut in the bottom corner and the top story open to the ceiling. Fields of cut paper grass sprouted from the floor on each level. I simplified my response to one room and used straight pins instead of paper grass. Ouch.
