SILHOUETTES











This is taken at the Tate Modern. My two friends exiting the weird storage rack, book and dinosaur like metal structure display. Oh OK I may as well let you see it. The Tate Modern is in an old Power Station building. No those two youngsters were not my friends.

I really did not get the meaning of this display

Not very good silhouette but thought if I uploaded it it would make me try harder and figure out something else

That first photo is very interesting.

I've been really busy with several health issues (sent along a description of today but there've been a string of other days. That and the Roalndale house and issues with PB at school etc. But hope to do some silhouettes soon and still working on water drops too,

We have snow today!

I think the silhouettes on the first one are quite interesting.

What IS that place?

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Modern art museum?

Very interesting.

I mean interesting in a good way, as in engaging and thought provoking.

Yes you are right. There has always been (well you know not always but in living memory) a Tate Gallery in London but then they took over the disused Power Station and it is now the Tate Modern Art Gallery. The other Tate Gallery is still there and the old masters etc are on display.
In the big generating hall there is always some kind of thought provoking exhibit which they change 2-3 times a year. I preferred the last one which was a great big crack in the floor. You can still see where it was where they have filled it in. This one looks like a doss house for tramps with bunk beds. They have left the tramps books to read but no mattresses. There are scary structures to give them nightmares when they are laying in bed. The books are tied to the wires.
