Interview with Geoffrey Hendricks

Fluxus artist Geoffrey Hendricks discusses the performance of The Sky Is the Limit: A Happening at Princeton University on October 10, 2013.  This special performance of The Sky Is the Limit channeled the legacy of early performance art, incorporating movement, sound, image, everyday objects, and audience participation into a new piece choreographed by Hendricks for the Princeton campus.

Stardust

In March 2014, Stardust, a six-panel jacquard tapestry handwoven by fabric artist Bhakti Ziek, was installed in Community Hall at Whitman College. Created on her Vermont loom over the course of ten months, each of the sixteen-foot panels is woven with silk, Tencel, and metallic yarns. This video captures the weaver’s process and her thoughts about the commission. 

Saving an Archaeological Treasure

Princeton's expeditions of the 1930s at the ancient city Antioch-on-the-Orontes, located near the modern city of Antakya, Turkey, unearthed archaeological treasures of one of the most important cultural and political centers of the Roman Empire. Among the finds was a collection of mosaic pavements brought to Princeton, including one example that in 1951 made its way to the threshold of the Architecture Laboratory, where time continued to take its toll. Fortunately, the mosaic was rediscovered. In the summer of 2012, the mosaic was taken to the Brooklyn Conservation Studio of Leslie Gat for restoration. In March 2013, the mosaic was reinstalled in the lobby of the School of Architecture. The entire process of removal, conservation, and installation is documented in this video.
