We went to see the MOMA exhibit of Olafur Eliasson, whose waterfalls begin in the East River tonight. There were some interesting things, such as:
--A creepy yellow light (low-pressure sodium) in which everyone looks bad and (at least initially) feels uncomfortable; somehow it made me feel I was a Cylon.
--Dichroic glass hanging from a chandelier stand, casting differently colored shadows on the wall depending on the angles of the light and viewer.
--A cascade of water droplets set against strobe lights; not recommended for people with epilepsy or heart conditions.
--"Wall eclipse": a rotating mirror suspended from the ceiling, casting a shadow across the entirety of a rear wall once per minute.
The exhibit, called "Take Your Time," ends on June 30.
