Yftach and Daniel came to me. “Mel” we have twenty minutes to clean a window. How about the new library? You need light to read!”

How could I say no? So I said yes. The windows hadn’t been cleaned there in modern history.

Yftach and I were elected to clean the window while Daniel documented the event. He claimed to have experience in documentaries.

There was a technological issue to solve – how to clean the outside of the window without snappling.

But our students are resourceful. We came at it from the sides. Both sides.

We scrubbed.

We did it! Another clean window at Shenkar.

We were proud of ourselves. We had taken ownership. We were in control.

“Hey guys”, I said. Come, let’s continue, there are more windows to clean. But they had run off to their lecture. Conscientious students, after all.

There are many more windows to clean at Shenkar. I will have to find more students. But I am guessing there are more students than windows.

And as designers everywhere know, ugliness is an opportunity.
