Red at Met

Standing on the rooftop of Met museum on this gorgeous day overlooking the city. I can’t help but feel the magic with 5 millenniums of art history below me and some around me, replicated by Argentinian artist, and on display till end of the month. You don’t have to be an art history expert to enjoy this whimsical rooftop installation called “Theater of Disappearance”. The sculptures are made out of foam and based on 3D scans of more than 100 real pieces from the museum’s own collection from different centuries and cultures, anywhere from Egypt, Asia and Europe. The artist unexpectedly paired the sculptures in what looks like a chaos after a fun party. I always appreciate artists who have imagination to create something like that and view history from a different perspective. I guess nothing in life ever ends or disappears, it just takes a different form.
