It was the monthly free day at our local museum, so of course I went on down there, because I like inspiration and I am a
cheap bastard thrifty sort. But it was the same show as last month, so I decided to look at the art in a different way. One way that you can tell that a piece of art is important is by the way it’s displayed. It’s on a pedestal and has lighting to illuminate it just so. What I got interested in was the way this fancy lighting cast interesting shadows behind some pieces.
Multiple images like the sort of thing that Andy Warhol did, and totally ephemeral.
And you might wonder what the original looked like.
Large pieces have a big shadow.
Bird, angel or monster? (I forget).
This reminds me that I need a tiara.
Along with the ghostly presence of shadows, we need the spectral image of a reflection in the glass.
