You’re looking at ‘Forest of Resonating Lamps,’ an art exhibit in the newly opened Mori Building Digital Art Museum in Tokyo’s Odaiba area, a manmade island in Tokyo Bay. The futuristic facility is making headlines this summer for its unique format. The venue features exclusively digital art–some 50 exhibits that are displayed throughout the 10,000-square-foot space to create an immersive, borderless experience. More than 500 computers and 470 projectors are used to create an ethereal effect. In ‘Forest of Resonating Lamps,’ hundreds of lamps dangle from the ceiling and light up in response to movement in the room.
I love the elderly as much as the next person but there is a point after which they are worse than 2-year olds. At some point in ageing we lose the ability to use common sense and just do what we want and blame it on senility. But the fact is that anyone should know that when it comes to art exhibits, HANDS OFF. Not the case apparently when it comes to crossword puzzles.
A 91-year-old German woman took out a ballpoint pen and began filling out the blank spaces of a crossword puzzle hanging at Nuremberg’s Neues Museum. Unfortunately the puzzle — part of “Reading-work-piece” by avant-garde artist Arthur Koepcke — is not a part of the museum’s interactive art collection.
