Thirteen doors were displayed at the Art Gallery in Ogdensburg Free Academy. The artist who worked in these doors was Alan Tuttle. The purpose of these doors was to create a personal story in response to the doors' depiction. I found many of the doors to be mind provoking, but one brought in so much confusion and thoughts it was easily my favorite.
The door that was my favorite was a door that , on one side, had a map, and on the other side, had trees with eyes. The trees were covered with eyes in which seemed to be a dark and lost forest. The map, on the other side of the door, looked to be marked with a specific trail and landmark checkpoints.
Many thoughts were provoked upon the sight of this door. The one that I truly believe is that it resembles someone "on the run." The map shows the designated route in order to accomplish freedom for what seemed to be a fugitive. The eyes on trees resemble his paranoia. They made me feel like he was being watched, while he was lost in the woods.
Although this is a story that wraps up most of the details of the door, that does not make the story true. Every person shall experience, in some way, a different story when encountering this door. My story is one of many, of which some are common and some are diverse. So go now and see these doors to create your own story and add to the group.
