Shhhhh: The Humans Are Making Art

So the Human and a friend went to the Museum of Modern Art this afternoon. It was partly wonderful and partly, well, maybe "around the bend" is a good phrase.

In one gallery a sort of street scene had been arranged (see below), complete with body-on-the-sidewalk. A well-meaning museum patron apparently didn't get the message though, and inquired repeatedly whether he was all right. He moved not a muscle, but the gallery attendant approached her, and in a portentous whisper explained, "Don't speak to him. He's performing."

Oh. Well, then, pass the popcorn

MOL! Humans are SO funny sometimes.

We don't think much of the performance - he's not even lying on a piece of paper or something vitally important like we do.

I think it was very nice that someone who didn't 'get' the performance art expressed concern about his wellbeing.

And given that the Human took herself off on another little outing, I'm hoping that she remembered the importance of bringing a wee gift of some kind home for the kitty this time.

I don't think he was performing . . . I think he just wanted to take a nap!

Humans are inexcusably weird sometimes. We mean, can you imagine staying immobile like that?

Well, maybe we can...

Well, he does look like he needs help.

That is totally bizarre. They should have drawn a chalk body outline around him. MOL! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
