Social Souvenir


Artist Sebastian Campion currently has an interesting exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark.  Social Souvenir is an interactive exhibit reflective of current online trends.  The museum is selling 300 t-shirts for 125 DKK each.  The t-shirt is black with white text, forming a phrase inspired by one of the museum's artists.  As each shirt is sold, they are removed from the tangible half of the exhibit and transitioned into the virtual half, a large map.  The t-shirt owner's address are marked on the map.  I like the evolution of the exhibit from offline to online.  It's very reflective of our social interactions today.
