Chambers Hotel Response

The piece of work I loved the most in the Chambers Hotel was the large photograph near the entryway, featuring a wide variety of characters all interacting together. It amazed me that all of the different people in the photograph - the lolita baby, the woman, the artist, the soldier, the man - were all the same man. I loved how clearly and creatively the costumes of each character portrayed what each was supposed to represent, as well as the creative use of different materials as eye-coverings (I especially loved the grenades placed over the eyes, and the glasses with paintbrushes poking out of them). It had a lot of history and meaning behind it, and it could easily be seen that a lot of time and effort was invested in the photograph, an yet it looked like a lot of fun.
