14 hours at Crisan



If you're wandering down to Lark Street for 1st Friday tonight, here's a clip of what you'll see in the window at Crisan. Artist/architect Shadi Khadivi spent 14 hours photographing what goes on in the kitchen at Claudia and Iggy's Lark Street bakery/edible art gallery.

Shadi teaches architecture studios at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, and Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, and owns her own design studio in Albany. She says she's fascinated by the creative process and by bringing what goes on in the background to the foreground. So she edited a full day in the Crisan kitchen down to about 11 minutes. You won't get any secret family recipes, but you will get a feel for what goes on behind the scenes and what goes into the creation of some of those gorgeous pastries. The project, called 6:45-9:00, will be projected on a screen in the front window of Crisan tonight.

Cool!

Nice work, Shadi!

It looks DELICIOUS! :) Also, unless I missed my guess, I think I saw my some of my very favorite Shadow Cookies in proto-cookie form! :) Thanks, NOW I'm going to have to go there and get some espresso before I go back to work... ;)

Andy, what I think you're looking at are actually the bourbon balls before they're being dipped and cocoa-ed :) I dot think we made shadow cookies that day :)

Thanks for coming last night! I had a really great time talking to you all!

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
