Ever wonder what your professors are thinking about when you see them ‘lost in thought?’ Here my former classmate, John Zissovici, provides a rare window into his pre-studio train of thought. Quoth John: “I’ve been walking over this bridge, off and on, for nearly forty years now and every time I look down into that formidable space. Sometimes I think about the first time I tried to measure the height of the bridge by timing the slow motion fall of the architectural model for my first semester final project that I had just set afire. Nowadays I’m more likely to be mentally measuring its other lengthwise, dimension so that I can get a running start for the stairs up to campus, which ascended, two at a time, helps not remind me of the approximately 120 miles I’ve walked over that cavernous void.” Wow!
