HOW GALLOGLY WOULD COMPLETE THE ‘SIX-PACK REQUIREMENT’

Asked how he would complete the new ‘six pack’ requirement, Gallogly says he would start with an empty square “because I think one of the pieces is seeing what isn’t. I am a big believer in the power of open space, the power of possibility, and the power to not see what there is but to imagine what there will be.

“Another would probably be around different ways you can actually write or express the concept of six, from Roman numerals, to writing out the word, to different symbols because how you get focused on a specific idea can really limit your ability to come up with other ideas.

“I would take a before-and-after picture of some furniture. One of my passions is taking old, beat-up furniture off Craig’s List. I pick them up, repair them and usually paint them and try to reimagine them and bring them new life. One of my great de-stressers is actually painting old furniture and then I flip it. It’s nice to have a self-funding hobby.

“Then probably something nature realted. I love the city, but I also need my respites from the city. I like to go out and hike and be connected to things that are not urban.

“And probably a shot of family members. I don’t think we get where we are without that kind of support and growth.

“And the last one I guess would be something that symbolizes a mirror. It’s really important to be self-reflective and to think about where you are, where you’re headed, what you want to develop in yourself, and what kind of contributions you are making. A mirror to be is a symbol of that.”

NO LONGER A NOVEMBER 15 APPLICATION DEADLINE
