Rotch Library Exhibit: Sam Bass Warner’s drawings from hotel windows

Posted September 20th, 2007 by mit-admin

The View from the Hotel Window, 1993-2000, an exhibit in Rotch Library from 9/12/07 until 10/11/07

“I started this project when I began traveling to visit hospitals for my collaborative book, “Restorative Gardens, The Healing Landscape, ” with Nancy Gerlach-Spriggs and Richard Enoch Kaufman (Yale University Press, 1998). At first the drawings offset the boredom hotel rooms impose, but as I kept drawing these assigned views I became fascinated by the visual disorientation that hotels impose on us all.”

-Sam Bass Warner, Visiting Professor, DUSP
