Lily Inspiration: Martin Creed

On Thursday last I joined up with a few friends to take a guided tour through the current Rennie Collection. To experience Martin Creed's work we waded through pink balloons, avoided runners while viewing hundreds of broccoli cross-section stampings, listened to a wall of metronomes while viewing explorations in office supply felt markers, watched videos of people throwing up (needless to say it was the most challenging room in the building), and listened as a grand piano gently lifted and slammed shut over and over again. It was a varied and fun tour culminating in a perfect view of Martin Creed's neon piece "Everything Is Going To Be Alright".

Here are a few of the photos I took during the tour. I have a couple of videos of the balloon room that I'll try to get posted for you sometime soon.

This sounds amazing!! I particularly like the picture of the runner in motion.
