Room to Move, Then Tetris

This is ninety Portraits.
I found the floor in my studio! For about two months the portraits have been carefully stacked front-to-front, back-to-back on the rug, accumulating mass and floor space as they were framed.

The portraits are all now in their boxes, numbered, labeled, except for one. Somehow this one did not seem to find it's correct box and I kept running across it as I methodically packed the others, ten to a box in consecutive order. It kept me company for the whole process. "What are you doing still out Dylan?", I finally asked it. Studio time is quiet.

Keep it simple right? So this one will have to find it's place later today as I finish that job up. Whew.

Onto PR, posters, postcards, mailing, lists, emails.

Most important though is laying out the space for the installation. It will be like playing Tetris with 185 portraits. How many on this wall, then the next. Spacing, grouping, breathing room. Then there will be less cause for panic when the boxes actually arrive in the Cantwell Room and the portraits take their assigned places on the walls.
