Nice work! Sorry I missed the show. I'll blame it on the 40 ton crane used for the install blocking my way. Really like the 4th floor shot. Keep it up!

Richard Serra, eat your heart out. Congratulations on your exposure. Is this the beginning of a world tour?

Re: "Big Steel" at MoMA NYC
These "Momentary shows are great, and they make an important point. They quite clearly show the extent to which context and critical approval matter. In spite of ourselves, we immediately associate your work with the art that we know is in the Louvre and Moma and reflexively assume that you are a part of the collections, selected after much discussion and criticism and at vast expense. We see and admire, and the next step is to say, well, why not? Why shouldn't these small constructs be official parts of the collections? They seem to survive the context quite well.
It suddenly occurs to me that someone could have some fun with Photoshop and pics of their work and some of the museum interiors--probably been done many times.

Re: "Big Steel" at MoMA NYC
Sub is cleverly addressing contemporary history/criticism/art world fashion with these little "episodes". Loosed from the limitations of mere words, he is making perhaps a more relevant commentary on the state of affairs that cause us (as viewers, tourists and enthusiasts) to succumb to the beckoning of museums. It is critical statement more than art - and its good to see it done like THIS; quite OPPOSING the usual methods of the scribbling fashionistas.

Keep em coming, Sub. I like where these are going.

I like them too, in additon to what you say E, I think they have a more personal touch, a temporary mark, and that's what I like most about them. Reminds me of this:

yep, keep'em coming
