Portfolio Exercise 7: Archives II response

At the archives, I looked at some drawings of someone who used to be a Parson’s student, called Luis Rey. They were drawn in the 1960’s and had been kept very safely and still are being kept. In the drawings, the same room was drawn over and over again, from different perspectives. We could see the room from an upper side view and from the inside. There was also one sculpture that Luis Rey used in several drawings. I thought that the houses were very modern, and to be honest I was surprised when I found out that the drawings were really old. The rooms, living rooms looked like the living rooms we have nowadays. These drawings made me think that the guy who drew them is a very farsighted person which is interesting because the other paintings and drawings of the houses and rooms in 1960’s were like nothing I’ve seen before and the fact that he was a person living in those times and still being able to imagine such different perspectives and figuring out different ways to portraying what the human eye can see is very precious and should be kept for a really long time.
