whitney museum

yesterday it was a perfect rainy sunday to go for an exhibition - or two. so i did. whitney museum was the choice - they are showing couple great projects there right now.
one of them was jenny holzer's installation. jenny is using mixed media (LED signs, oversized scans of documents, and drawings) to deliver the mixed message - overview of historical and politics eventes together with the words of her own philosophy and private confessions of an everyday diary. beautiful exectution of a thoughtful and ambiguous theme.

another fascination was doug aitken's "sites" - 4 rooms filled with video and sound that overpowers your own reality and leave you in a state of an after-dream. it appeals to you on a very subtle sub-consious level - i am sure that each of the person in the audience understands the installation differently.
