Wednesday Vignette – now what?


I suddenly found myself maxed out of space at Flutter & Hum, so this week’s Vignette is offered to you from the still available territory of The Creative Flux – until I can figure out what to do. This shot is from the fabulous, glazed in “no-man’s land” in between Cleveland Museum of Art’s old building, and the new addition. Every month, they open that space up to the public, and throw one hell of a party with music, dancing, and drinking. The galleries stay open, too. I enjoyed all of it, but was particularly impressed with the combination of material textures and party lighting. Stunning, don’t you think?


About annamadeit

I was born and raised in Sweden, By now, I have lived almost as long in the United States. The path I’ve taken has been long and varied, and has given me a philosophical approach to life. I may joke that I’m a sybarite, but the truth is, I find joy and luxury in life’s simple things as well. My outlook on life has roots in a culture rich in history and tradition, and I care a great deal about environmental stewardship. Aesthetically, while drawn to the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia, I also have a deep appreciation for the raw, the weathered, and the worn - materials that tell a story. To me, contrast, counterpoint, and diversity are what makes life interesting and engaging. Color has always informed everything I do. I’m a functional tetrachromat, and a hopeless plantoholic. I was originally trained as an architect working mostly on interiors, but soon ventured outside - into garden design. It’s that contrast thing again… An interior adrift from its exterior, is like a yin without a yang. My firm conviction that everything is connected gets me in trouble time and time again. The world is a big place, and full of marvelous distractions, and offers plentiful opportunities for inquiry and exploration. I started writing to quell my constant queries, explore my discoveries, and nurture my curiosity. The Creative Flux was started in 2010, and became a catch-all for all kinds of intersecting interests. The start of Flutter & Hum at the end of 2013 marks my descent into plant nerd revelry. I occasionally contribute to other blogs, but those two are my main ones. For sure, topics are all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blogs!

    I couldn’t get your link on Flutter & Hum to work but I found your WV anyway via a separate search. The texture AND color contrast in your photo is great. Unfortunately, I’ve no WV this Wednesday, just another springtime plant shopping celebration. I hope you’re able to get something worked out to create space on Flutter & Hum! (I haven’t heard of any space limitations on Blogspot but perhaps I need to look into that. Yikes!)

      Thanks for your perseverance, Kris! Yeah, that space was something else… And I love how they throw a party EVERY month, while keeping the museum open. Just a great place! As far as the blog goes, I’m putting it off. I dread working on stuff like that… ugh! A springtime plant shopping celebration sounds FAR more interesting!

    I think WordPress might be holding F and H hostage!

    Cool! It’s amazing what lighting can do to make a good space even more special. Sorry, I just found your vignette here.
