Tate Modern

Eric and I went to the Tate Modern Museum today followed by a quick shop through Borough Market. There a few unique pieces there that I did not fully appreciate, but these are some of the displays I felt were worth noting.
Monet's "Water Lilies". Eric knew what this was called before even looking at the cheat sheet.
This is too good - Whoever can come up with the best caption for this one wins!
All this stuff is actually not what it appears to be. That's not a VHS, it's made of something completely different. No, those cookies are not edible. And no, those boots are not flexible and you cannot wear them. There was a whole room like this.
Eric looks good, but what are those things behind him?
Oh, it's 100 MILLION hand painted porcelain sunflower seeds - we wondered where the artist stored these before this exhibit was brought to the museum.
Someone stuck a mirror on a canvas and called it art...we made our own art.
Eric said I was the most beautiful piece of art there...Awwwwww! This is his modern art photo.


  1. I would name this last piece of art: "Perfect skin".
    And I am thinking the contest art display is titled, "cmybheinie"

  2. "I don't have a thing to wear!"

    The seeds were definitely stored in large black garbage bags.yup.
    Now Jaime: I'm a little surprised you didn't know that was Monet's Water Lilies. Don't you rember the book you got in 4th grade-ish about Monet's Garden? (it's at my house now)

  3. That is a lot of sunflower seeds! That is one very patient artist! It's so awesome the adventures you guys are getting to go on! Love following this blog!

  4. The caption should definately read "motherhood".
