Looking down from above

August 17, 2012

MOMA in New York City is a beautifully designed building where interesting installations can be viewed from several angles. It amazes me how artists can consider so many perspectives and make each one an experience of its own.

I loved looking down at museum-goers wandering around this piece. Here’s some video:

From above, it resembles gorgeous Native rugs, each lit by a single light bulb suspended on a very long cord (a couple stories long, actually)  and it looks very different from above than it does from ground level. It’s  perfectly placed in the museum.

Another inspiring MOMA moment, brought to you by the the many patrons of this wonderful museum.  Did you know the Rockefeller family was instrumental in the founding and development of MOMA?

I’m impressed by the commitment this family has had to its city.

Of course, it’s hard to forget that Nelson Rockefeller died in the saddle, so to speak.  But that prurient memory is dying out as we boomers move on and up…so to speak…leaving only the wonderful legacy the Rockefeller family has left to New York City.
