Shiny Things

Today when I walked into this exhibit I stopped dead in my tracks and just grinned.  It's so shiny and pretty.  The first part is mainly... wall art, I guess is the best term?  There's painting and more modern things I don't know the name for and this crazy cool metal "fabric" made of alcohol labels.  It ripples along the wall and it's great to get up close and walk along its length. Makes it flow.

The second part is a maze of videos, which was definitely the more crowded part of the exhibit.  My favorite room was longer, with a large video of another room showing a shaky hallway/door type setting and then there were small, older-looking TVs along the sides telling different stories.  It's almost overwhelming walking in there, which mean in the best possible way.  I'm going to have to go back because I very much doubt I saw everything there is to see.

There's also some gorgeous photography, very vibrant and colorful, but for me the highlight of the exhibit is the metal "fabric" and the longer video room.  Check it out.
