Deja Vals

April 16, 2009

I had a feeling I’d seen this before. The New Yorker article on Peter Zumthor took me there. And then, of course, it hit me. All works of art that seem vaguely familiar but can’t be placed must be by Pratt Institute alumni. That’s my school, if you must know.

And yes, I stand in reflected glory.
