We went to another MFA EXIT SHOW at the University of Georgia here in Athens, this past Friday and were thoroughly impressed with what we saw. We looked at art, had some nibbles, hung out with friends, and snapped off a few photos...The giant MEGAPHONE THING above had a tiny speaker attached to the end of it which emitted "industrial noise" intermittently...it was surprisingly loud...
Another SOUND INSTALLATION...there were faint STREET TRAFFIC NOISES coming out of each speaker:
This tank had an AUTOMATED SHOWER HEAD that moved back and forth across the top, showering MOTOR OIL over a tray of CERAMIC (maybe plastic) SPHERES:
We thought this MUSTACHE-MONOCLE combo was pretty cool:
Missy striking a couple of poses in one of the LIFE DRAWING studios:
We lingered long enough to have the gallery all to ourselves...
We joked that this was another art installation, but it was just ice from the open bar dumped out on the walkway at the end of the night...
