1000 Pound Bend, and David Bowie is at ACMI
I really loved use of found objects in the decor. I counted three small old television sets. They make me feel nostalgic for when we had such sets in student houses and we played about with the rabbit ears, strove to see the picture through the snow and hit the tv to stop the picture rolling!
One part of the building that fascinated us was the windows which had bars on them but no glass. We were sure there must be shutters. However when I asked a waitress, I was told that they had recently changed the layout and the windows near us had previously been in a smoking section.
ACMI in Federation Square. (ACMI's more pretentious name is the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.)
But onto the exhibition, it was overwhelming. In fact, David Bowie is overwhelming with all his constantly changing styles, music, masks, haircuts, costumes and brilliant ideas! My favourite exhibit was a tissue blotted with his lipstick that was over 40 years old! Really! Who kept it? I also loved watching the Life on Mars video while standing beside Bowie's powder blue suit and looking at his handwritten lyrics.
