All of these are things we heard from museum guards at the SF MOMA today — except for one. Can you spot the lie?
“Don’t get too close”
“Don’t blow on it”
(Clockwise from top) Audrey in “Notion Motion”, Leo and Audrey in “360 degree room for all colours”, in the mist of “Beauty”, and wearing blankets before entering the room with the frozen BMW.
And the only one we didn’t hear was “Don’t yell”. Yes, the over-protective guards of the installations by Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson told the kids not to blow (on water that was in a pool), not to jump (on creaky floorboards whose purpose was to make the not-to-be-blown water move), and don’t lick (???) or kick(???) the frozen car.
The exhibit was called “Take Your Time “.
