To find Mint Gallery is to experience Atlanta. It is not the castle on the hill of the High Museum, a collective effort of Richard Meier and Renzo Piano. A promontory of white steel projecting into the sky. An inviting courtyard without an inviting passage. It removes itself from the street and all that the street represents; a coexistence with the pedestrian, the flâneur of the city. The museum does not recognize their existences. They are foreign ideas to the automotive driven city of Atlanta, but the vestiges of such still permeate the urban fabric. //

Before penetrating deep into the heart of the studio culture concerns in the COA, we should look into how the College of Architecture defines studio culture: GA Tech Studio Culture Document By first defining Tech’s publicly defined ideal studio, we can, then, address how it compares to the actual studio culture today.

For years, the COA undergraduate program structured the Senior studio in such a way that the students could choose which studio they took depending on their interests. Fall 2009 Senior Studio had a fresh add to the studio options! An installation studio was added and it was to be taught by the in-house artist/photographer; Ruth Dusseault. The installations were temporarily placed around different sites on campus.

I was so fortunate to be part of this amazing experience. No one, including I, knew exactly what we would be required, so the experience was quite new and challenging for all 12 of us. Throughout the semester we investigated various ways of visual representations of ideas, especially abstract ideas. We also worked in teams amongst ourselves and with a greater body; the entire school, to birth our ideas.
In my opinion it was a great success for the first of such a unique studio. It challenged us to think beyond the box, to investigate all types of circumstances and the ability to work and ask for help from others in different fields. It also made the campus more aware of certain issues, and buildings as well as the College of Architecture at GaTech.
My project was titled the Culture Bridge and it investigated the issue of cultures on Tech’s campus and how their presence is felt. For a better understanding of the project read my Artist and Visual Statement. //

The quintessence of neutrality, GREY can represent either mediocrity or moderation. Serenely lodged dead center on the color wheel, and falling midway on the value scale from black to white, grey can sometimes appear to occupy no position at all.
In our observations of the sky, dark clouds and light mists form the nebulous limits of grey. Dawn and twilight each describe a fleeting passage. But a grey day can seem an eternal limbo. Grey weather can feel tedious and dull compared to the uncanny brilliance of snow and ice or the crackling drama of a summer thunderstorm. Depending upon temperament and circumstances, the asylum of grey will either soothe or irritate our anxious souls.
Despite our best efforts with henna and hydrogen peroxide, the effects of aging on human hair has not escaped notice. Enough at least for grey to be associated in popular culture with the geriatric set — from éminence grise to the Gray Panthers. Since those of advancing years are generally held to take fewer risks, and since the color itself hews to a middle ground, grey has also come to be affiliated with bureaucracy and bourgeois conservatism — from “The Gray Lady”, hoary moniker for The New York Times, to The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit, a fifties novel about an average businessman in postwar America.
