London: Art (TATE)

Art Lovers: I don't know these people, but they looked so sweet, I had to take a photo.

Below: The experience that is Miroslaw Balka's piece "How It Is."
The installation is a gigantic steel structure that you can walk under, around, and into. One enters the piece via a giant ramp, and once inside, it becomes darker, and darker. People around you move slowly and cautiously- as do you- because it is so dark. So black, so dark, the outlines of those around you are barely perceptible. You feel very alone.

Entering (above) and Exiting (below) How It Is.
