Paris Plage! If you know me, you won’t be surprised that I have a bunch of questions. Like where do they get all this sand? How do they get it to Paris? The Paris Plage website does not answer my questions, but I learned other useful things, like that I can rent a boat or borrow books.
I promise to not just be the creepy person on the bridge taking photos, I’ll go check it out soon enough.
The Dynamo exhibit at Le Grand Palais ends today. I was fortunate to be able to go before it ended; however, I probably should have eaten first. It was a dizzying experience with all the flashing lights and optical illusions. I waited in line for 30 minutes to go into a room filled with thick blue mist. I only lasted about 30 seconds before I thought I was going to have a panic attack. It was totally disorienting and you can’t see anything besides the blue mist directly in front of you. I stayed close to the walls. I’m sure the people watching from the monitors outside the room thought I was insane. Here are some photos I took at the exhibition.
Maybe making shadow puppets wasn’t the most mature approach, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Also, I was recently telling some friends that I thought it was stupid when people take photographs in museums. Well, I just became one of those people. C’est la vie.
