Play War: Homemade Recreational Battlefields
At 6:30pm on a warm Thursday afternoon I walked into the Emory Center for Visual Arts to see Ruth Dusseault’s second showing of Play War. The gallery had selected twenty works, all of the same size, to be placed along its walls. This was a bit of a surprise since the photographer usually shoots with a wide format camera that lends itself to large prints. However, the intimacy of the 24×30 prints allowed the viewers to enter into the world that Dusseault has discovered. //

BLUE may be seen most abundantly in the sky, on the water [the reflected sky], and with moonlight [also reflected]. We also find it in certain animals, minerals, and vegetables, but in a more fragmentary fashion, an accent among the prevailing browns, golds, and greens. Accordingly, blue carries strong associations with otherworldliness and with distance. Leonardo da Vinci noted that objects gain a bluish aspect as they recede to the horizon. Who has not regarded distant blue hills without a stab of longing?
Vishnu, the Hindu deity who preserves the world, is frequently depicted with blue-tinted skin to connote his deep relation to water, as is Krishna, his avatar. The Virgin Mary has come to be identified by blue robes; although her connection with the color is relatively recent, it follows the metaphoric logic of the hue. //

Passing by the former home of the Georgia Department of Transportation this weekend, I noticed something slightly peculiar…part of the building was missing. Rebar is flying out of the once inhabited floor slabs while front end loaders wait patiently amongst the settled debris on the ground below. A section has literally been removed from the building the old fashioned way.
The building is at the corner of Mitchell Street and Capitol Ave. You can approach the demolition site without too much trouble.
Here are a few pictures of the building and what little info I could find with a quick google search: //
