FIELD TRIP #2: Photographs and PDF handout
The second Stairwell’s Field Trip was a smashing success. After meeting (appropriately) on the steps to the Student Union, Spot the Octopus led us around the UC Berkeley campus, performing songs and leading us in a raucous noisemaking session at the base of the Kroeber Hall stairwell. After a picnic lunch outside the Berkeley Art Museum, artist Collin McKelvey invited participants to listen to and manipulate audio devices he attached to the building’s supporting structures. We then entered the museum and read Yelp reviews of the space, drawing on a remarkable store of enthusiastic comments about the building’s earthquake safety, Brutalist design, and other beloved qualities.
