Last week I went to the BYU Museum of Art and saw this exhibit of Dan Steinhilber's. He uses mass-produced, mundane objects for his medium, and creates work of optical interest.

Check out these pictures: dangling dry-cleaning hangars, a mural of duck sauce packets,
flickering fluorescent light bulbs (which undulated in such a mesmerizing pattern it was hard to look away from them), and crumpled and laquered trashbags. Too bad I couldn't get pictures of the interconnected rings of pvc pipe or the sculpture of twisted baloons--they were awesome too.

My favorite? The corner of the room full of packing peanuts that were occasionally blasted into the air by industrial fans.

*L* I think you wrote this whole post 'cause you just wanted to say the words "my boyfriend."

Nope, I didn't even think of that. In fact, I removed them just to prove that point.

LOL No need to remove them. I believe you. I just enjoy giving you a hard time, that's all. };^D'

Think of it as a mark of approval.
