A new temporary art installation, called Eye and Cardinal. Cardinal is elsewhere, this is Eye.
The noonday sun does not reach this part of the Chicago Loop canyon. Still, I saw half a dozen people photograph this thing in the few minutes I was walking around it.
The installation rests on an older base with quotations about knowledge around the bottom. The one visible here says “The power to question is the basis of all progress.” -Indira Gandi
This post was written with the free blog editor Windows Live Writer, recommended on the WordPress support forums, after the WordPress image editor was too broke to even upload an image. The image handling part of the program is much easier than WordPress, but the text editing is more difficult. And there seems to be no way to retrieve the html code after writing something, which makes the program worthless for creating links to post in blog comments. And in the end, it wouldn’t upload to my blog at all, after at least 20 retries, so I had to cut and paste everything to the WordPress editor after all. Big waste of time.
