If it happens to be a beautiful summer day in the city, and you really wish you had access to a rooftop with a killer view of Central Park, why not head over to The Met and visit Cornelia Parker’s Transitional Object (PsychoBarn), which will be installed at the museum’s roof garden through the end of October, 2016? Yes! Why Not!?
The Psychobarn is, of course, a not-to-scale copy of the iconic Bates House from the Alfred Hitccock thriller, Psycho — a house which itself was inspired by an Edward Hopper painting. How meta.
Downside: It is not easy to get photos of the Transitional Object without people in them. These are my first world problems.
Geoffrey photo-bombed me, because he thinks he is clever. I got him back later.
Surprise! The House/Barn is only built on 2-sides!
But who cares? Look at the beautiful day we were having!
