Patrick Crabb's paths of discovery have taken him in several related directions exploring the vessel, architectural interpretations, and the figure. These paths continue to criss-cross each other, conveying a sense of mystery and visual power to the viewer. Historical artifacts from ancient cultures layer the imagery, resulting in a multi-cultural composition, reflecting contemporary life.

We will present Slowing of Perceptual Time: The Spiral Patterns of Light, a lecture by architect Laura Joines, in the Logan Gallery of the Center on Saturday, November 12th at 5 pm. The lecture will draw from wide-ranging sources, including Plato's belief that first-hand knowing is critical to learning and understanding, and Albert Einstein's theories regarding the relationship between space and time.
"My method is made up of unpremeditated intellectual acts of knowing the buildings of a place or the things of a site that have the qualities of slowing time down," Joines says. "I need to know the buildings by feeling the building in the mind through first hand experience. Only then can I attempt the act of interpretation."
Laura Joines, AIA, is a Professor at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Her work embraces feeling a space and integrating the daily processes of life with an emotion and spirit and heralding the moment and the practical. She is currently working on a number of projects for the Besant Hill School of Happy Valley.
