Tate Modern Slides

Everyone is talking about the Tate Modern slides, because they are Art. Well, actually it's because they are fun, but isn't that the best kind of art?

So which photo to show you? The DNA View? The "What is it?" View? The Abstract View? I chose this one because I think it is art. The spotlights throw these fascinating shapes on the wall, and most people are too busy looking at the slides.

I like this view the best. Very interesting shot.

Oh, and the show Good Morning America had a piece on the slides this morning.

Nice shadows, cool shot.

Bravo, Ham! My vote for one of the very best shots of the year!

Like this a lot, especially the fact that nobody else notices what's around them. Have a great ride this weekend mate.

Took me three clicks to realise every letter in the first two words was a link then! Love this one Ham, definately art. The DNA one is gorgeous too.

Brilliant :)

Question is...Did you have a go?

Another brilliant photo - thank you!

I read it in the news here, but thanks to your series I have taken a good look at the slides at Tate. I consider this one with shadows and silhouettes more artistic too.


Blogger Nathalie said ... (22:47) : 

Aaaaaah Ham this is my kind of photo. Yes it is art, absolutely! Congratulations, it really speaks to me. The abstract one is interesting too but this one is better. The other two are just there for information.

The more I look at it, the more I like it!
BTW I really enjoyed your elephants series.
In Sydney today, I went touristy and had a go at the Sydney Opera House, hard to resist from time to time, it's such a powerful subject.

Thanks all!

Did I have a go? Not then, but as I work very nearby, I'll pick up a ticket one night (they are free) for the next day. Might even put together a posse.
