POP!





went to the Andy Warhol exhibit at the AGA yesterday with friends. it was a fantastic display of Warhols works. really enjoyed his early works with watercolour. they even had his wigs on display. on the fourth floor was the interactive exhibit Silver Clouds. a room filled with silver pillows to which you got to bump and toss in the air. at first they were just balloons but after awhile when you were watching them float and collide things seemed to transform... disappear and other things were emerging. well at least it was for me. simple yet deep!


after awhile you felt as though you could float...

I'd been wondering if this was worth going to see

@ Ms Givens... yes i was trying to be all cheeky and be Warhol-ish!

@Tim... i thought it was. it was at no extra cost, just the price of general admission. plus you certainly got a sense of the sign of the times... celebrity before the self obsessed age!
