I went to the Champagne and Ribs event at the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston on Thursday. We were able to get a sneak peak of the exhibit before it officially showed to the public. In one word I would say it was…"Interesting".
I was touring the exhibit constantly saying to myself "art is in the eye of the beholder" because some of the exhibits... well... looked like it came out of a scary dream. One of the guests touring with us said it reminded her of the movie Video Drome...lol (if you seen it then you know why it is like a scary dream).
Well we got a sneak peak and now I’m passing my “peak” to you via my camera phone! Enjoy...oh and also I took a quick video snippet of a video they had on display, and... um... yea...it was scary… to me. Tell me what you think!
this one was the one that reminded me of a bad dream and also the video at the end was tied with this exhibit!
this yarn is a large spider like display
This was my fav display... it was all made of wood. Lots of detail...

I have been on this "dream house" kick lately, and I have stumbled across some architecture that was amazing. Art comes in so many forms and there is beauty even in concrete and steel.

I want to be able to find both... to be able to appreciate the inside and outside of my home. Wanting to be as comfortable inside as I am outside!
Anywho… check these out!
The second generation of VM Houses is VM Bjerget, aka Mountain Dwellings, located across the street from its predecessor. Faced with a program of twice as much parking as dwelling units, the architects adopted a strategy of stacking the two functions and terracing both the 480 parking spaces and the 80 apartments to create an artificial hillside that absorbs the southern sun and acknowledges the neighbor's zig-zag. A gap between the parking and residential components makes the division and dependency clear.
Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film by renowned graffiti artist Banksy, became the hottest ticket at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival where it made its world debut. Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation whose work can be seen on walls from post—hurricane New Orleans to the separation barrier on the Palestinian West Bank. Fiercely guarding his anonymity to avoid prosecution, Banksy has so far resisted all attempts to be captured on film. Exit Through the Gift Shop tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results.
