Harry Partch: I Was A Bum Once Myself

This view of the South "Wall" is a continuation of the previous look. The large central object is a cervical vertebrae from the skeleton of a whale. This effectively separated two racks of photographs, all of which are on the stage of the performing area in OmniCircus. The content continues forward in time, with a number of photos surrounding the preparation and performance of Partch's largest work, "Delusion of the Fury", and move toward his last years in San Diego.
