i have experienced firsthand Cai Guo-Qiang's exhibition of suspended car bodies with fiber optic lights shining out of them over the foyer of the Seattle Art Museum. I'm sorry. I found this RL work boring and unimaginative. I found it vacuous and empty of emotion or meaning. Perhaps i have been spoiled now by the excellence of virtual art and artists in Second Life and the Open Sims.

I tend to like anything with exploding cars (action movies, high art.) But I really loved Cai's recreation of the famous Chinese propaganda sculpture Dr. Munroe mentions in this video, very subversive and powerful IMO.

Hmm...RMB leaves me cold.
