That’s me standing in front of the Self Reflection video mosaic, one of the exhibits in the interactive digital gallery at the Museum of Photographic Art, San Diego (MOPA). My image is blended interactively onto a background mosaic of mug shots from the “7 Billion Others” project. The exhibit works like those concave silly mirrors in the Fun House; it’s irresistible.
Seven billion and counting; that’s how many humans are sharing the planet. The“7 Billion Others” project was photographer Yann Arthus-Bertran’s attempt to better understand the inhabitants of the planet, starting with the African country of Mali.
MOPA is in beautiful Balboa Park in the Casa de Balboa building, along with the Model Railroad Museum and the San Diego History Center. The current exhibit at MOPA is Trilogy: Black and White photographic prints by Mexican photographer Flor Garduño: Bestiaries, Fantastic Women and Silent Natures.
Enjoy yourself in the Interactive Digital Gallery, and then take a reflective tour of Ms. Garduño’s photographs—they are stunning, and beautifully mounted.
