The #Harvardinautumn social media campaign has produced a plethora of posts containing vibrant foliage, dusky evenings, and preppy fleeces. It's produced such an idyllic picture of the fall season you can almost smell the pumpkin-spiced latte. But fall at Harvard can also be pretty darn ugly. For the sake of creating a more honest portrait, we’ve rounded up a few images of the true #Harvardinautumn.

Yamaguchi Ryuun’s "Fire" creates the appearance of an open flame.
The diversity of the works is by showing the interesting effects that can be achieved by manipulating these traditional media. Traditional bamboo creations typically involve strands of bamboo woven together to create a solid structure, but Yamaguchi Ryuun’s "Fire" ingeniously leaves multiple strands of bamboo unbound in order to give the bamboo the appearance of a flickering flame. This and other works in the exhibition show how divergence from longstanding techniques can be used to create unique and captivating effects.
