The David Bowie Exhibit at the museum of contemporary art (Chicago) ... To see or not to see - see, see, see
The David Bowie exhibit is an experience, not a show, not a boring exhibit that your attending to please someone else, not a tattoo on a frog. The exhibit reminds us or perhaps gives us our first encounter with the realization that we can be whoever we want to be.
As I looked around at the other viewers in the museum I saw something I rarely see in museum attenders; mesmerized twinkling eyes, deep thought processes and genuine interest and a yearning for more. When the end of the road appeared, many refused to exit, instead going back to take in Bowie's messages, magical creativity and hypnotizing music videos.
* yep, definitely crazy. Yesterday she was handing out seashells to the homeless telling them that they represented the never-ending beauty of the universe, they either looked at her like she from Mars or confused as hell, like they had lost their own minds
*2 days ago she got caught swimming in the lagoons of the botanic gardens. She said she had to get a closer look, she had showered first as to avoid contamination of the natural environment and she wanted to make sure the fish were happy.
*My dads friends with her doctor and apparently she's had multiple brain scans and every psych test available
*And....crazy? what is it, schizophrenia, multiple personality?
*She's apparently completely sane
*Maybe she just thinks its funny
*Or maybe she really is from Mars, I bet on that
***Guys I just heard everything you said about me ha (she skips away)
Moral of the story:
If being weird enhances your life, never suffering from boredom, curiosity pulling you this way and that with excitement, then follow who you are or you'll never meet yourself.
I love to dance, my true self naked to anyone whose watching. -G
