Artist Mary Lum strolls around the city photographing the urban environment—buildings, railings, stairwells, and other architectural details. She then deconstructs these photos and collages them with acrylic paint, creating dynamic, unique spaces for viewers to occupy and explore. At the deCordova Biennial, Lum’s images left me feeling both exhilarated and disoriented, as though I were in a dream where the environment was familiar, yet not quite right. What is fact and what is fiction?
This piece is very interesting. I like the way his face has been distorted into two different positions. It suggests a transitory moment of his two faces. One is a very serious face: time for game time, the other face is looking down. He is either smiling from happiness or grinning from failure. Margot Kessler

Distortion...how does Sheryl 'distort' her reality? is it through 'Mind reading'? Does she assume she knows what others are thinking? What evidence does she have for this? What else could they be thinking?...or am I myself mind-reading by assuming this about her situation?
Interesting take on what the future may bring and isolation from the world. The Earth sits in the background, far away, as a group of people swim in a pool. They seem to notice something outside the visible region. Is it more civilization, or an unforeseen future danger?
