I guess I can understand why as they are old and fragile....but you know,
they are MEANT to move. It was REALLY hard to walk by the hand-cranked
displays and not touch...or the electric-motorized pieces that WEREN'T
running. But not blowing on the wire sculptures or mobiles? Give me a
break! They HAVE to move to appreciate them. Without movement, there is
little joy in viewing them at a standstill. I think there should be motors
running and/or air (fans of some kind) movement being controlled by the
exhibitors. Does anyone else who has seen this exhibit feel the same way? I
hope that when this exhibit moves to another state location, you'll have
the chance to see what I mean.
It's not like you are standing right up close to these mobiles and wire
sculptures. The pieces are sectioned off with ropes, cords and taped
flooring. Just a puff sends a gentle breeze...enough to get the thing
slowing turning. What's the harm? I bet if Calder showed up with his wings
and halo, he'd have a fit and be waving his arms wildly to get the air
flyin'. Hummmmm. Toodles.....
