It was a great night. I like my new "shut down the moment" theory.
As for the video art display, I'm glad you were baffled too. I love photography, I love video monitors, and I love laying in beanbag chairs in the park at night. But I must say, the photos they were showing looked like the pictures that come in store bought frames, and so getting people to sit in beanbag chairs at night to silently gaze at them was more of an art piece than the actual art.
Or maybe that was the point? I don't know. It was cute.
So is Dan Slott.
