THe spiders are done by artist Louise Bourgouis. Her work is in Cleveland,
Ohio right now. Three huge iron spiders are in the city across from the
theater district. They are incredible. Louise Bourgouis' photo was taken by
Annie Lebowitz and it is in Lebowitz's new book Women written by Sonia Sontag
or something like that. I am not sure of the writer's name but the book is
mostly photographs. Louise's work is very interesting. I wrote a masters
thesis last year and found her insights quite pertinent while researching an
artist's process. She had several references to spiders and their symbolism.
 She is definately worth looking up.
