Last Wednesday’s Presentation


My poster as it hangs in the fifth floor hallway. I really liked how it turned out. I think the 3-d aspect gave me a challenge and I feel like I rose to the occasion. Especially if you know Behrens much, this feels like his style on speed, which what it needed to be because we associate so much of his style with modernity as a whole that it would have seemed passe if I stuck to his sense of minimalism.

I gave a three-minute presentation on Peter Behrens. At least I think it was three minutes. Time really flowed while I spoke in front of the class. I covered most of my points and told a cohesive story about the context in which Peter Behrens rose to the height of his career as artistic consultant for AEG. The class laughed when I half-tried to pronounce it in full, which is supposed to sound like Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft, but I think I ended up saying Allergen-aflergafler-gendlestaffu.
