The feeling of the unexpected, being out of place, surprise and delight.
That's everything I felt walking into the Friendship Park and presented with this.
The Outdoor Museum
Art should engage, inspire and create dialog. Sometimes a challenge in a stuffy museum but ideal outside.
A perfect example, while staring at this my young niece runs up claps her hands raises them over her head and exclaims "a power plant"
Winding through the parks meandering paths adds to the sense of discovery and interactive - ness?
Every time I see TOM I think Theater Of the Mind.
Yeah, cliché I know.
Even better, an art show highlighting consumption, waste and ecology and along comes the physical manifestation of this, a barge transporting oil. Hard to get that juxtaposition in a museum.
