If you follow my Instagram, you might already have seen me flouncing around Providence in my new dress by Hell Bunny–but this bizarre large-scale sculpture is one detail from my Rhode Island adventure that I saved for today’s post!
Urs Fischer’s Untitled (Lamp/Bear) occupies an unexpected corner of the Brown University campus. It’s provocative, nostalgic, eye-catching and almost the exact same color as my dress, so I definitely had to take a moment to admire this guy: disarming ursine button-eyes notwithstanding.
Ever since I acquired this charming seahorse-print dress (purchased on super-sale after I admired it for months), I couldn’t wait to wear it on my Providence trip. It’s fundamentally summery and comfortable: perfect for scouting out potential grad schools in the heat of August. Sadly, the miserable New England weekend of high heat indices (yes, I do take the Latin plural of “index”!) made it impossible for us to visit the seaside after my college investigation.
At least I had the aqua tones of Lamp/Bear as a consolation prize.
