Sorry for the low-res, but this is the nameplate for that NSA sculpture piece. Worth reading.

At the Te Papa museum, this amazing exhibit is made entirely of sculptural representations of the leaked Snowden NSA docs.

The stage setting of the exhibits were both entertaining and immersive. #silvertosteel

The middle arc of Peter Muller-Munk's #silvertosteel exhibit focused on the evolution of his agency's work, from fabrication and design to end-to-end execution. Everything from products, packaging, strategy and even events and booth design were all offered by his company.

Peter Muller-Munk's back catalog, via an amazing self-contained slide carousel. It's contents served as a full research mood board for every Mad Men set. #silvertosteel

Over the last few weeks in Pittsburgh, I had the opportunity to revisit the museum that is most familiar to me, and some recent exhibits therein, with a few wonderful friends. This continues my streak of only posting art from museums, at least for another few weeks.

Another Nam June Paik, "Three Eggs," is a favorite. So modern, and yet so old.

Lichtenstein, part 2, presented in reverse chronological order so that tomorrow the pieces will fit together appropriately. 
Even before my stint in the offset packaging world, I loved liking at newsprint under a magnifying glass. Seeing the halftone patterns was like peeling back a layer of reality.

Warhol made this piece at a time when he was trying to remove any human element to the production of imagery. While there is a definite image in the piece, its production was almost paint-by-number in its approach. The reproduction methods were purposefully optimized around a randomness and distortion. 
As an aside, this piece is on the cover of a pop art book I've had for decades. I never knew it was an actual painting; I just thought someone had taken liberties with a Warhol print and used it as a graphic design element on the cover.
