Chambers response

My favorite piece in the Chambers Hotel was the entire stair well. I'm not exactly sure it does it justice to call it one piece but it was so amazing. "Elemental" by Juxtaposition Arts used so many vibrant hues and flowed so eloquently from each scene to the other. I think allowing this group to paint their entire stair well shows a lot of originality and character. Perhaps the most interesting pieces for me were the ones in the bar and lounge area. The 7 minute video by Sam Taylor-Wood was extremely and oddly intriguing. The entire hotel tour greatly broadened my view of what can constitute as art, it was truly an amazing opportunity.
