Default Find Photo-Domino-connections: Berlin Wall Panels Opposite, LACMA, California!

Try to find images that can match at least one part of this photograph, grass being just incidental!




Asher Kelman: Berlin Wall Sections Opposite LACMA, Wilshire Blvd, L.A., California, October 2012

Ten panels we can number 1-10 from left plus the background. This should work something like matching dominoes. Just state and describe component from Berlin Wall or b.g. one is linking too. for example, #5, Kennedy! Be imaginative and not conservative! Association or even opposites are fine!

I'll answer with the b.g. This seems to me to be by RETNA, a local LA artist who writes win secret languages and won over LACMA curator Steven Deutch!





RETNA:Ultimate

Painting

Kohngalery.com Los Angleles, CA



You can read about him here. So now the b.g. has been addressed once, pick any section, to make your matches!

The panel #2 with the jagged element suggests an earthquake surface rupture!




Prof. Grigory Koff, Geological Institute Russian Academy of Sciences: Kalingrad: Ground Fissure!
Macroseismic effects of the Sep.21,2004 Kaliningrad quakes at community of
Lyublino, c.a.20 km WNW of Kaliningrad see location map below).







Asher Kelman: Berlin Wall Sections Opposite LACMA, Wilshire Blvd, L.A., California, October 2012

Now you can match or contrast either picture elements as we proceed this game of photo dominoes! It's a game I thunk up for idea linkage.


So now we could add this:




National Geographic: Karen Kasmauski: Fractured Road, Japan


"A crane and several construction vehicles lay toppled on a fractured road in Kobe, Japan, after a 7.2 magnitude temblor shook the quake-prone country.
The Great Hanshin Earthquake Disaster of 1995 was one of the worst in Japanís history, killing 6,433 people and causing more than $100 billion in damages."

So that's how the pieces get put together and grow into a web of ideas! Have fun!!!

I know this is not a photograph, but I couldn't help comparing the earthquake one to this drawing about the earthquake/tsunami in Japan in 2011.

Maggie,

You have uplifted my spirits! At last someone figured it out perfectly how to play this picture dominoes I conjured up, and your choice is fun and apt. Thanks for bringing in such a cartoon. I'd never have seen it otherwise!

Well done!!

sadly, I think the post was lost in a shuffle of other ones so I didn't even see it before today. When I have a chance, I will try to do some more. :-)

I love your work.
