On the evening of April 8, 40 people dressed all in white made their way from wherever they were in Salt Lake City to the steps of the Capitol building. For 12 hours straight they walked slowly and silently in trances of personal reflection up the Capitol steps as part of the performance piece “Awaiting” by Ernesto Pujol. Originally from New York, Pujol is the only artist-in-residence that the University of Utah has ever had. There is a small gallery of photos of the performance here.
Also: This new TV channel will take (real) America by storm.
And if you haven’t checked out the photos in the Japan Gallery, you really should.
Photo of the Week: 京都 Arashiyama- Bamboo
In Kyoto’s western district, Arashiyama, behind Tenryu Temple lies a grove where these tremendous stalks of bamboo grow. A popular place for tourists to rent bikes, the road cutting through the grove is completely shielded from the outside world by walls of bamboo.
