    Just as well it wasn’t cubism . . . he could have lost an eye.

    I’d heard about this exhibition, got a lot of press . . . painful indeed.

    LOL ~ Poor fellow! I have also heard of precautions needed at some of James Turrell’s exhibits in the past because of his alteration of viewers’ perceptions with light.

    Thank you Ikiru/Terry, the whole idea of the exhibition struck me as quite bizarre, but then I suppose all art is in its own way.
