This is an awesome time-lapse video of Parsons Illustration Faculty Tara McPherson creating a special art installation at Choque Cultural Gallery in Sao Paolo, Brazil back in the summertime. It surfaced awhile back (we shared it on Facebook and Twitter), but it’s still pretty awe-inspiring and is definitely worth another look.  You can see more images and commentary on this project over at the I Love Offset website.

Tara will be back teaching in the Spring and we’ll be glad to have her back. 🙂
