GOMA

I finished work early yesterday and on my way back to the car in West End, I stopped by GOMA.  I'd heard about the finches.  The exhibit is called From Here to Ear.  I was alone in this room with specially composed music, a constructed environment and the live birds.  It was awesome.  No photos were allowed, but this Youtube video is better than any photo I can take....


You'll find this near the cinema

I was VERY tempted by the slides

And who WOULDN'T want to run their fingers through all those white lego blocks
The most amazing structures and, just as in real life, abandoned projects and half finished dreams...

You can see that these metal balls are reflected in a big black cube...
A door magically opens and as you step inside the door quietly shuts behind you, leaving your senses buzzing...
What is real, what is reflection, am I going to fall in the water?

You can take a wish from this wall of ribbons and leave your own.  According to tradition, once the ribbon wears away and falls off, the wish will come true...
I wish to remain curious
I wish I had a tail to show my mood
