Oh the horror! German ex-scientist turns art bunker into funhouse!



As was entirely predictable, German artist Carsten Höller’s new art installation at the Tate Modern is causing quite the fuss. “Carsten Holler (sic!) has built five enormous, stainless steel slides swooping down into the hall, including one that falls five storeys from the top floor.” (story) See some pictures here. More here, with some “criticism” right at the end. You know I can’t help but applaud Carsten Höller’s work for the simple reason that he’s somewhat of my twin brother (albeit the successful one), what with him being a (former) scientist, “bespectacled and geeky, with a bulging forehead” (source).
