On the Ground

Happenings
10/27
Third year Dan Marty played hero by wrangling a broken air hose in the shop.
10/28
The 6 on 7 crowd migrated to the Queering Space closing reception at the School of Art. Architecture students devoured apps while watching performances involving bondage, warm soup, and sex.
10/29
First years did yeoman’s work visiting Bushwick for studio and racing back to don costumes and co-host the annual halloween party. Conclusion: YSoA does drag well.
11/01
Students put on professional pants for the SOM-YSoA joint session and portfolio design workshop. (Hire me!) If you missed it, just remember to only use one font.
11/02
Preservation Matters, but why? Max Page answered the question during his insightful talk. Painful sites need to be preserved just as much as beautiful ones.
11/03
Professor Keller Easterling delivered the Thursday lecture coinciding with YSoA’s Open House for prospective students. “Things That Don’t Happen and Shouldn’t Always Work” featured porn, helicopters, and diamonds. And it really worked.
At the end of open house, Dean Berke doled out allowances to current students wearing nametags to treat prospective students at GPSCY. By the way, she wants her change back.
11/06
A miscalibration with the end of Daylight Savings Time cut short the last hour of laser cutting on Sunday night. Please be prepared to forget this again next year.
Classy Affairs
First years used leftover pasta from Structures structures for a spaghetti feed on the 6th floor last Saturday.
Students in Mark Gage’s advanced studio are in a face-off over hotel reimbursements with their travel agent, Assistant Dean John Jacobson. Unsatisfied with their accommodations at the Kauai Beach House Hostel during their seven day trip to Hawaii, the students relocated and may not have followed proper protocol.
Post Pros reported a dismal studio session on Monday the 7th and attributed it to a group “treat yo’self” weekend in NYC. As one Post Pro post-rationalized: “Life is a little cha-cha-cha [sic], you know? You gotta go a little backwards to go a little forwards.”
