Here are a few snaps from my Diana Mini, as promised. This was not one of my better films. All the photos from the Ron Mueck exhibit were horribly underexposed (not overexposed, as I had previously thought). These photos are of me and my friend Nika outside the State Library, which is right next to the Gallery of Modern Art. I like the pattern on the outside of the building. It reminds me of wallpaper. Another thing I like about the State Library is that it provides free wi-fi. Backpackers and cheapskates take note: if you’re in the city and in need of internet access, don’t pay for it, nerd it up in the library instead!
The only Ron Mueck related photo that turned out remotely OK was this one of the giant baby’s squishy face. And even that had scratches on the film. Pity. I might just have to go back again and take some good photos with a digital camera.
This is from the ‘Unnerved: The New Zealand Project’ exhibition in the downstairs part of the gallery. It’s free. I thought the lighting there was worse than the Ron Mueck exhibit, but apparently not, since this photo turned out much better. My favourite part of the Unnerved exhibit, without a doubt, was the wall of televisions playing episodes of Flight of the Conchords. Is it really art? Who cares. It’s Flight of the Conchords.
Basically, what you should take away from this post is: if you’re in need of free internet and want to watch Flight of the Conchords on continuous loop, the State Library and GoMA is where it’s at.
