A day at the museum!

Edward Ruscha!
Claes Oldenburg
The Dali Lobster phone!
An Eliasson room whose lights made all color appear black and white.
An Eliasson cube made of light and fog.

I went to the MoMA the other day to see the Olafur Eliasson exhibit. Fantastic! It was really fun to see something where you could interact with and touch and run through the pieces. One of the rooms was all black with a stream of rain going down the middle and strobe lights flashing. 

There was also an excellent Salvador Dali show about his life in film. Did you know that Dali did a short animated film with Disney (called Destino)? I was totally surprised because Disney is basically evil, but maybe Dali knew something we didn't...

Here are some of the highlights of my trip.
