Slides at Museums

I finally made it to the New Museum to check out the Carsten Holler exhibit:  Experience.  It's an exhibit that plays with perception. Read about it here. Or here.

The carousel ride at glacial speed. It has mirrors overhead so you can watch yourself going at a very slow speed.  The line for this wasn't too long but you can see the line of people behind for the slide.

In the same room, were the bird cages full of living, singing birds.  It's disorienting because it doesn't belong in this setting.

And the slide.  It's 100 feet long and travels from floor 4 to 2.  I have pictures of the beginning, the middle and the end.  The slidee emerges into a room with flashing lights which explains the very white pictures.
