What Looks Like Art is Not Art
New York, say hello to the your newest favorite attraction: Carsten Höller’s 102-foot-long slide at the New Museum. The giant plastic tube, which goes down from the museum’s fourth floor, through ceilings and floors, to the second floor is now fully operational and will be open to the public from tomorrow through January 15, 2012. And did we mention there is also a sensory deprivation tank? And upside down goggles? And a fish tank you rest your head in? Suddenly getting dragged to the museum seems more like dropping acid and reliving your childhood than a chance to better yourself.
