Being Cultural...

Of course I'm doing other things than just eating.. it's just so much more fun to take photos of colorful, enviable food products or show off my novice cooking skills, than make pictures of pictures in museums. But yesterday, I went to the CaixaForum to see the Omar Fast exhibition. Call me a philistine, but normally I can't get into video art no matter how hard I try. Perhaps its over my head, or I am old-fashioned and want my art to be "beautiful", or don't love watching various forms of flagellation. However, Omar Fast won me over. Two of his pieces The Casting and Nostalgia were installed and I stayed in the dark to watch both of them for well over an hour.
