Being a purveyor of technology links and a coder feels like the furthest thing from a museum curator, but my friend and gallery owner Jen Bekman asked me to choose eight of my favorite images from her online art gallery 20×200 this week.
20×200 is a treasure trove of eye candy. Be prepared to spend some time there, and maybe even a little money–you want to buy and hang this stuff in your home and office. I had a ball making my picks, which will appear in
tomorrow’s next week’s edition of the 20×200 email newsletter. In the meantime, I get to share my favorite of all the pieces: the one pictured here, a photo called “The Office” by Rebecca Loyche. Here’s an excerpt of a chat transcript between Jen and I about the photo.
Jen: I think it’s hilarious that Rebecca Loyche’s photo is your favorite btw.
Gina: I *love* that photo. It made me laugh out loud. That is totally me, on many days of the week.
Jen: It’s a really great photo and it gets better and better as you dig into the details.
Gina: It’s true, all the gadgets and computers everywhere, her outfit, the shoes.
Jen: I’m actually particularly fond of the newsletter that I wrote for that one.
Gina: Love the wicked witch death hint. Your newsletter is great, I love that the photo was about an irrational fear of fiscal management for you.
Jen: I honed in on the accounting software myself since that kind of operational/administrative thing is my entrepreneurial nemesis. I have gotten MUCH better for the record. The other thing I like about it is the really discordant color palette.
Gina: The pink window sills are so great!
The rest of our chat and my picks, which are predictably geeky (but beautiful), will go out in
tomorrow’s next week’s 20×200 newsletter. Thanks so much to Jen for giving me a break from looking at software interfaces for a day!
