Cut: Revealing the Section

Artforum picked "Cut: Revealing the Section" at the SF MoMa this month as their critics choice for San Francisco. I checked out the Lee Friedlander exhibit yesterday and caught a bit of "Cut" towards the end. Their right, it is impressive.

The layers of architecture really fascinate me. Looking at blue prints and seeing floor plans, they're like a puzzle. I tried to take an auto cad class once, thinking if I like to draw I could do architectural drawings. Not so much the case, the whole math to it was way over my head. While I don't have the patience to learn it, I appreciate its calculated complexity.
