The 1/4 Mile

There was a huge exhibition at LACMA by the artist Robert Rauschenberg called "The 1/4 Mile."  It is a 17 year project by the artist, who created 190 panels that when connected together measure 1/4 mile.  There are also some free-standing pieces, like these stacks of books.  For some reason, stepping into this room amongst these stacks was a really interesting feeling.  I can't place the feeling exactly, but when have you ever seen stacks of books piled this high?

I would love this room. Surrounded by books, checking out some titles, wondering if some would get knocked over...betsey
