Addovolt Explorations: Friends In High Places

old-school showmanship at the University of Chicago


Gargoyles are so wrong they're right.

mid-evil: do these party monsters look like they'd chase away malevolent forces or encourage them to join the fun?

For centuries, they've delighted and confused pretty much everyone who've noticed them and, yes, they do want to be noticed.

Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.--a sanctuary for traditional and not-so-traditional grotesques

But for being creations produced in order to promote virtue--in their own roundabout ways--they don't necessarily give off cuddly, moral feelings do they?

they seem nice....:  when they're not puking out rainwater, these concrete creatures provide nesting spots for birds

For this short doc, I want to thank my longtime collaborator, Stefanie Foresta Erdmann, for doing the narration duties.
