Since I was out, I zipped over to see Karrie's work at Intersection for the Art's M5 gallery in the old Chronicle building on Mission Street. Broadside Attractions: Vanished Terrains (photos at the link) ended this weekend, but I was glad to see the gorgeous piece that Karrie co-produced Elise Ficarra, commenting on the plight of the endangered Marin White Deer.
I felt things going full circle while I was at SFMOMA looking at their exhibition The Utopian Impluse: Buckminster Fuller in the Bay Area. His principle of "ephemeralization", which meant in essence "doing more with less," seemed to speak both to Fuller's realization of the limitations of the Earth's resources and to Recology's goal of recycling and reusing every possible resource. On display were many of his drawings, and projects inspired by his ideas.(SFMOMA | SFGate | NYT)
