The Gates: A Visual Literacy Case Study


I came across this fantastic online lecture about the Gates by John Weber, Director of the Tang Museum at Skidmore College. It's called The Gates: A Visual Literacy Case Study. He says things like: "I'm going to guess that more pixels and film were expended on it than have been deployed in the service of any single work of art to date, and while I can't prove it, I'm sure this has to be true. Walking through the Park with a camera in hand it was impossible to avoid taking one picture after another in an attempt to find the perfect summation of the experience." Bravo John, we couldn't agree more.
