Here were some of the questions I found myself asking about your observational documentaries:

Could I tell what materials the work was made of?

Could I tell the context of the work and how people might come across it?

Could I tell the boundaries of work?

Could I tell the title and artist?

Could I tell a reason for filming what was filmed, and how it was filmed?

Could I tell a reason for when the camera moved and when it was still?

Thanks to John my video is finally up. If you only knew what I went through to get this online…x_x. I may have to go to strange lengths to upload all my videos but I suppose as long as they’re up on time…

I was looking for information on the Persia Campbell Dome (what is it? is it a planetarium? has anyone been inside?), and came across a whole network of interesting QC history. Did you know that Martin Luther King, Jr. gave a speech here on May 13, 1965? Did you know that Paul Simon and Carol King graduated from here? Do you know that Remsen Hall was named after the man who discovered saccharine?

Here is an undated document by Jeff Gottleib (QC alum and President of the Central Queens Historical Association) called “Early Queens College Facts.”

Here is another document on sculpture in Queens that mentions some of our campus’s work and artists.

I Googled some of the names and was surprised not to find that many images of the work on our campus–although there is information about some of the artists, some of whom seemed to be well-known in their day. Gottlieb makes reference to “Rene Paul Champollan’s ‘Prometheus’ (1950) at Remsen Hall”; could that be “Chambellan,” who worked on the sculpture at Rockefeller Center?

Anyways, these documents might be interesting or helpful to gather clues about your works. I also wonder about the fact that so many of these works have very similar-looking plaques; there’s got to be someone on campus who knows about when they decided to install all this stuff (and who might also have more archival info).

My video isn’t uploading. I’ve been having a lot of trouble with imovie for the past few weeks. I’m going to try to have it up as soon as possible. I’m really frustrated. I’ve been trying for two days.
