Just ran across this picture again and thought I'd share it. It was taken at the Tate Modern in London in May of this year. While I was initially disappointed that it is out of focus I've come to like it all the more because it is. Seems like a shot you should have from a modern art museum. This was my favorite exhibit. The exhibit was in a relatively small room as museum rooms go. The artist sent instructions to the Tate on how to execute this piece. First the whole room is painted black with chalkboard paint. Then each wall would have a graphic shape drawn on it with chalk. I am standing in front of the circle but there was a triangle and a square... With chalk the whole room had evenly spaced lines drawn vertically. Inside each shape the lines were drawn horizontally. On the wall they had the instructions that the museum worked from. It had a diagram and instructions that explained the size relationship between the shapes and the possible size of each wall. As a graphic artist and font designer I am really drawn to graphic shapes and it was truly amazing to be inside this piece of art. I think about it often. I am so pleased I got to see this. Walking into this room took my breathe away.
And I could not believe it but this museum is free. If I lived in London I would go there every week.
