German Posters

Autumn has arrived rather suddenly at RIT. The weather has gotten very cold and rainy – there was even hail the other day. I’m disappointed that such a nice summer is now finally at an end as identifiable by the transition to Rochester Winter (since winter here really lasts about October-April). Classes are stressful. And fast-moving. Most days I feel like I’m on a rollercoaster – one morning things will be ok, projects are under control, etc. and then by the afternoon (or the next day or two, if I’m lucky) I realize that I have so much work to do! At least now I know that the end is nigh and I just have to cling to the rollercoaster long enough to make it to the end station and pull out of here.

Sorry for the awful quality. Cellphones have no right to have cameras in them...

With autumn has also come a new exhibit to the gallery in the art building. I was pretty excited to see that this designers’ posters are all in German! And a number were for performances in towns in (what was) my area – there was even one for Richard III at the theater in Dessau! I don’t actually care for his style very much, I think there’s more to design than slapping some giant type and bright colors on a poster. But I spent a little while going around and reading what they said, one of them had a cool poem on it. Since I noticed the exhibit on a kind of stressful day, it was a nice pause in my schedule to spend twenty minutes not thinking about how busy I am.
