Today we decided to take it easy. After a casual lunch in the square, we ventured into a grocery store to get some staples, because after all, eating out all the time can get boring (pricey).
Later in the day we went to the Secession building.
A bit of history if you're so inclined to read it:
There's one room with a 3 wall fresco by my favorite, these photos will never do it justice, oh well.
Where are my graphic design Art institute alumni at?! A special shout out to Michelle Damato for teaching this particular point in graphic design herstory with so passion!
The rest of the building is contemporary works.

"What goes beyond the exhibition as an artwork is the program as an artwork."
As I stood infront of myself, encapsulated in "the knot", I couldn't help but wonder, was this desire for a selfie a byproduct of society's influence on my subconscious or a conscious microaggression on the art piece itself. 🤔
My most millenial self reveals itself: standing infront/disrupting Rosa Barba's kinetic sculpture from her Spacelength Thought exhibition.
Anika Farukee's The Visible Spectrum achieved its goal of creating a tension between atmospheric impressions of light and illusion and the material nature of color and paint. It's also pretty and has a rainbow in it. 🦄
See Matt, it doesn't matter!
