Anthropologie at Rockefeller Center
Anthropologie is known for its amazing displays. Many of them often feature books. On my last visit there was even a small exhibit in a dark room immediately beyond the entrance. Lucy and I headed to the store on Thursday night. I’ll call first to find out when they closed. We had one hour to walk and shop. Google Maps said it would only take half an hour, but this trip confirms the people at Google are speed walkers. And I’m a fast walker!
We made it just in time to check out the art and try on a few clothes. The top picture seemed to be a topographical map made out of knit layers. Perhaps salvaged from old sweaters? Most of the other work was created from painted wood. This piece was like a mosaic of wood across the two canvas walls. There was also a huge cyclone tunnel of wooden frames inside the main window. I noticed that the lights over the cash registers were made out of two wooden frames held together by four wooden dowels. A slew of same-sized cardboard frames acted as the shade unevenly spaced along the dowels. I almost asked if the lights were changed with the store’s design.
When we left I noticed a wall full of old slides. What was this? I wasn’t sure but I took a picture.
Then I noticed the jagged edges of the collage and a rainbow schematic.
By the third window, I saw the projector. Genius! What a fun way to display all of those slides hiding away in my parents’ house. Plus another good excuse for a light table.
