A Visual Playground

Montreal Museum of Fine arts, arts, museums, galleries

Art captures one’s imagination. It can even make us feel young again. Childhood memories, yes sometimes it can bring  back our childhood memories.

Memories resurfaced, when i saw this stunning green and red art installation in Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

I was like a child again engaging myself in this visual playground this time minding  not to step on the little colorful blocks that resemble the cute lego blocks i used to play during my grade school years and of course that street game my childhood girl pals fondly named..”STEP NO, STEP YES” game.

A group game where you covered your eyes with your hands, jump in the chalked  line and asked your friends if you’re stepping on the lines. You asked them “step?” and wish to hear their “No” reply, One of the very few moments in your life wherein you really wish and hope to get a “No ” answer. (the sweetest “NO” i’ve ever heard! lol) Otherwise, your friends say yes and you’re out of the game! How art imitates life sometimes! –by JoelF
