CAP field trip!02/20/10
Today we took our first CAP field trip of the year! We visited Machine Project where Emily Lacy and Michele Yu kindly gave us a tour and introduced us to the crazy carnivorous plants in the basement. Then we bussed up to Sea and Space so the students could finally see the fruits of all their labor! After checking out Aquarium and its garden, we walked up the street to an amazing space run by artist Bob Breen. Using such materials as bottle caps, bird wings, and glass eyes, Bob Breen has created a staggering amount of sculpture. Definitely an inspiration to Reclamation’s hunt for used materials! Also, made me think about how we create structures from trash… Need to do lots of research before Terrarium.
Juan took lots of photos of the students at Sea and Space, and we’re going to post those and blog about that as a class next Friday. For now, here are a few images of our visit to Machine Project and the Bob Breen gallery.
