In medical school our exams would be multiple choice, often with a number of dazzling permutations as possible solutions:

(1) A, C an D are correct

(2) B and C are false

(3) D, B and A are not false

(4) All options are correct ( @stray cat already hinted at that one ;) )

You would generally have about 30 seconds for a question like that, and a hundred more questions to follow. Wonder, how I ever learned to treat a patient 😎

I'm going for C.

Applause for all who jumped aboard. Charles nailed it, but Phil logically covered all stops (I was hoping all choices sounded possible), while Adam punched up the Laugh Factory, and Mathias reminded us of his Mensa pedigree with his flashback to test taking. My thanks to all for their indulgence.

For this "practical abstract"--oxymoronic?--I started with the inspiration of Robert Rauschenberg's cardboard box assemblages he called Cardbird, which used ordinary cardboard boxes assembled to represent abstracted forms on the wall, such as birds and such. Then, I was thinking of Rietveld and his De Stijl aesthetic of reducing architecture, furniture, and objects to the simplest statement, like the Red/Blue chair (1918-23). So I wanted to take an abstract form using color fields and represent a template that can be mentally folded into the shape of a practical box. It's mental, I know. In the exercise, the abstract color field on the wall becomes mentally reconstructed into something that's not present. An experiment in photography as sculpture. Really big sculpture to keep from getting boxed in!

Cheers,
Rog

Happy New Year!

Damn! OK this is the year to start thinking "outside the box". Or "can".
