This morning I visited the California Museum of Science. I’ve never been to a museum as crowded as this one.
As often in museums the visitors were as interesting, or even more interesting, than the things on display.
Here is my modest proposal: a museum where the visitors will be the main attraction. Of course this can only function when the visitor isn’t aware that he or she will be the reason why other people flock to the museum.
I would call this museum the Museum of Human Vanity. But I don’t doubt that other people will be able to come up with better names.
Obviously some “fake art” should be on display to soothe the visitor. We could also call the museum the Museum of Fake Art.
There should be a hall with a sign: “You can dispose of your own art here, but please leave space for other artists.”
