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.
There was a lot of dirt.
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.
