    Tiny Castle Looms

    When we got the haikus, that one jumped out as one of my favorites, because I actually took a class through the Soling Program, where I worked with Geoffrey Navias and the Open Hand puppet people. We made a bunch of puppets and put on a big show at the end. I thought it was such a great place, something really fun, and something you wouldn't necessarily think would be here in Syracuse.

    I went back to take a few photographs for this project, and they had the Indian puppets out. Over last winter break, I went to India with my professor, John Thompson. So it does have a bit of an Indian feel to it. And the castle -- it doesn't exactly match the Open Hand Theater building, but I wanted the idea there. Plus, it's a pretty unique building.
