Viva Las, la Vida

Hamlet Au reviewed this art exhibit, and it looked interesting, so Kathy decided to take a look. An exhibit about life? Sounds deep. And, indeed, at the end, there are multi-colored arcs, and projectors, and the number pi, and men and women stick figures, and...well, see for yourself:

After all the ponderous wandering through the various rooms is over, there is dancing, so that celebrates life, I suppose.

And some of the creations were nothing short of fantastic - Not Possible in Real Life for certain!

Oh, and speaking of unrealistic, here's the notorious impious Kathy Jameson...praying? Hmm, some deep Satanic land must have frozen over.

But it hits the visitor over the head again and again. The exhibit is at altitude 666 meters - yes, we get it. And after going through several rooms with prose about enjoying life, yada, yada, we get the great revelation that...war is bad. And war with children is really bad. Oh my. Thanks for that life lesson. Having learned that, we head outside, to the big ark (lordy, symbolism alert!), where we dance and celebrate life. Sigh.

Wow, that Miss Jameson sure is a warmongerin, child soldierin' apostate.

I know how you feel. Visually impressive, but not exactly subtle with the messages...

I strongly object to child soldiers - the little tykes make such small targets! (It's a joke, okay? Stop pelting me with Amnesty International bumper stickers!)
