the morgan library

after working at the morgan library last night, i find myself still in awe of the modern interior of the space. particularly the main atrium, which has two large, beautiful trees rooted in soil beneath the wooden floor. the sight of a large tree indoors, surrounded by glass panes and walls, is a stunning image. the tree is so singular and prominent and theatrical--it reminds me of waiting for godot, wherein the tree is the only set piece. i want to use a huge, real tree in my "eurydice" project!
