In Sydney we decided that we wanted to check out some exhibitions. So we went to a visitor center and got a recommendation for MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), where Australia’s first solo exhibition by the interactive artists, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, were showing. It was really interesting. You could go around an contribute to all the installations.
The pulse room. Each light bulb is a persons pulse. In the other end of the room there was two metal pipes you could hold on to. When you did, the whole room went black, except for the light bulb in front of you, which showed your pulse. When the next person came your light bulb moved one step forward and so on. I wonder if my light bulb is still there.
The second room we came to was full of measuring tapes. When you stood in front of them they started going up, until they where too long to stand up, then they would fall.
Photo 1: A room filled with old-style microphones. If you said something to one of them it would play back something totally different that the person before you said.
Photo 2: This was a long TV screen showing you if you stood in front of it, and if you stood there long enough you’re eyes light up and smoke comes out of them.
I didn’t quite understand this installation. The screen showed thousands of small photos. Some of you and some of others before you. I think the small images where supposed to show some kind of shape.
This room had a microphone in the end of the light stripe where you could sing or just say something and the sound would change into light waves.
The last room we went to had tons of fingerprints all over. You could put your finger into a little whole in the wall and it would sorta photograph it and measure your pulse. Weird room, almost a little gross.
I really enjoyed the exhibition. If you’re in the area it’s absolutely worth a trip. It will be up till February 12.
Back from the waterfall we bumped into this little guy. I tried to get close enough to get a good photo, but she got scared and jumped away. There was actually a little baby in her pocket. Probably really protective of it.
Happy Australia day everyone! Hope you’re having a good day:) We’re gonna barbecue really soon and then go out in St Kilda probably. The guys are already a bit drunk:P That’s what happens when you start at 6 am.
Me today! Dress from Sportsgirl. I’ll show you a better picture another day.
