PTDW Graduate Lecture Series: Tri Ngo

Location: Columbus #319

How does one go about putting the moon into a box? Perhaps with a round mirror, or a black box with a hole, or a camera to take its picture so.  Is it water? If yes, then set sail a porcelain cup afloat a midnight lake to catch the dripping drops of the moonlight nectar.  Or perhaps a rocket ship carrying one foldable box made for a Canadian Inuit. Or simply cross both hands into a perfect square and lift it high toward the sky. What is the moon anyway? Dip it in a glass of milk and take a bite.

Tri Ngo, MFA candidate from the Painting and Drawing Department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, will, for the graduate noontime lecture, talk about his quest of making a box for the moon.
