MOMA, musings on art

Yes, still in NYC. Hopefully I'll be home soon.

Today we went to Nobu, where I've had the most delicious sushi ever. This deserves a saperate foodie post.

Afterwards, we went to the Musuem of Modern Art.

I've decided that I've fully reached the point where I can say I enjoy modern art. Before, I used to think: "I can do that." But now I realize.. yes, you may be able to do that. But you didn't.

Also, the value of art is not proportional to the amount of time put into it. A painting that someone spent 30 days on, is not necessarily better than what someone spent 30 minutes doing. It's not the sweat that makes art special. It's the effect it has on people.. and people react differently to things.

Anyways, I really enjoyed the special Color exhibition MoMA had, and now I'm inspired to do more experimentation with color, and just make stuff I feel like doing.. instead of having a pre-defined expectation of what art should be. Anyone wanna join me for an art night?

I also fell in love with Matisse's work, and discovered that I like Cezanne.

Ok.. off to take the train to the airport.

I'll do some art, certainly.

I'm up for an art night. I haven't done any art since... December of 2006!

I like strange art
I visited MoMA 3 years back, well, not all of it obviously, but they had the largest outside-USA exhibition they've made until now in Berlin.

I'm not an art-nerd, but near as I could figure it out they seem to use modern in a rather narrow as in "not classical" sense. Then again many of the projects and objects that I would classify as truly "modern" aren't really fit to hang in a gallery.

CCC converting a 30-story building into a game of PONG, playable by mobile-phone, is art to me.

The flash-mob pillow-war in the main railways-station of Dresden last year.

Some guys in California building a plane that flies by flapping its wings -- just because.

Dunno. But I do know I'd like to visit the real MoMA some day. Unfortunately that's unlikely to be like this decade.
