I had my ‘day off from babyland’ today and went to see Douglas Gordon’s exhibit at the MoMA. I was mesmerized by his piece called “Play Dead; Real Time”. You can currently check parts of the video as a flash piece on MoMA.org. (scroll down)
The framing of the video is absolutely amazing. Most of the times you only see the elephant’s legs and belly… If you’re in NYC, go and check it out. It’s a fascinating work of art.
