This evening I wandered over to Summit High School in Bend, Oregon to take a few pictures. The buildings were all locked and the athletic fields and tennis courts closed. In this space which, during the school session, is normally awash with young energetic people, there was now a sterile empty area further compromised by copious amounts of cold, hard, thin structures. In the above shot, the chain links invite the eye, but not the body, to go beyond. It sends a firm message, often expressed poignantly through signage, to keep life out. Fortunately though, art rescues us from such negative sentiments. The angles and shapes of the diamond screen, railing and imposing foreground fence create together an elaborate, imaginative metal design. It takes us inside and provides a more interesting way to view the world.
