Now for a quick dash through some of the exhibits as my penultimate post about this fantasmagorical exhibition! Come on – keep up!
First up, Full Spectrum: Australia’s Celebration of gay marriage being accepted by law
I liked the way the rainbow lights shone out of the darkness in such a playful way – metaphorically beautiful.
Next a room to make you giddy with exotic scents and mesmerizing patterns
from Hong Kong, Sensorial Estates: lift the lids and inhale deeply! Heady stuff!
And now a quick trip to Guatamala. This exhibit really deserves more time – click on the link to discover more and see much better photos. Such a great project.
Closer to home: Dundee and Shpeel
Each button on the black box, when pressed created a different light effect on the wall and different sounds. It was fun to play with these and feel like a conductor of light and sound. I played for some time here and it got even better when I was joined by a group of students – I got a tiny teeny titchy sense of what it must be like to be Jean Michel Jarre! Ha!
Lastly, for this post, kaleidoscopic doodles from Saudi Arabia – blurred because they were constantly moving. Oh how I would love to be able to do this with my mandala doodles.
It makes me feel charged with electricity just thinking about it! A mandala doodle as a kaleidoscopic mirrored wall – oh my goodness wouldn’t that be trippy!
Gosh I have to stop now and go off into my mandala-doodle-filled fantasy – I might be lost all day!
