what is white and floats from the sky?

Ashes and Snow, That is the silly title for a pretentious art exhibit opening I went to last night. Besides the crowd, really bad wine, freezing conditions, and mediocre art, the architecture was amazing.

As NYC visit says,
"They will be displayed in the Nomadic Museum, a 45,000-square-foot temporary structure designed by renowned architect Shigeru Ban and hosted by the Hudson River Park’s Pier 54, between 12th and 13th Streets. The first of its kind in the world, the Nomadic Museum building will be composed largely of recyclable and reusable materials—used shipping containers for the walls and paper tubing for the roof and columns—demonstrating sustainable practices and an innovative architectural approach within a post-industrial environment."

blah blah blah - look, it's cool.

you can see the shipping container in the background - the photos were printed on... felt? I don't know yet. They look better online. The shot was taken from behind the art, so you can barely see the monk-kid with wings.

The lighting was good...
