Art Institute

The Art Institute of Chicago advertises they are "the best museum in the world"…the jury is still out on that one, but we can confidently say they were the best we've experienced thus far! With multiple pieces by Picasso, an astounding sculpture exhibit, and more modern art than you can shake a stick at, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

This amazing installation @artinstitutechi is called "Murmur Study" by Christopher Baker. This piece examines the impact of micro messaging from your favorite social media platforms, giving you a visual of the mass of information that is stored in servers somewhere far far away. The receipts that you see are printed from thermal receipt printers that monitor specific Twitter hashtags and activity. The end result is a cascade of receipt paper accumulated in a huge tangled pile on the floor!
