Those of you who are paying close attention will notice that yesterday’s and today’s posts have the same title, but yesterday’s is inside quotation marks. Why? Because yesterday I was referring to the art installation in Nantes by that name. And today I’m referring to Melinda’s, Chloe’s, Ella’s and my installation in Nantes this summer.
Today’s photo is meant to illustrate our installation. It was the first picture I took upon our arrival, and it was taken in the Nantes airport. That’s Melinda clad in the orange striped sweater on one side of a glass partition, and Christine & Bérnard on the other. Melinda and Christine are talking via cell phone. As tired as I was when we arrived, I got a huge kick out of seeing them communicate like this. I remember thinking it was like some kind of specialized zoo exhibit in which patrons can communicate with the animals. I still haven’t figured out which side of the glass is for patrons and which side is for the exhibited animals.
Of course, part of what makes this picture so special is the “A Journey to Nantes” sticker/poster in the frame. At that time, I had no idea what it was so decided it was meant for us (I think that makes Christine & Bérnard part of the animal exhibit).
