As soon as we heard that Isa Genzken’s “Rose” will replace Ugo Rondinone’s “Hell,Yes” (2001) on the exterior of the New Museum … we immediately thought Photoshop!
Our little digital collage experiments suggest that fiction is often more exciting than fact.
A friend suggested that the New Museum leave Rondinone’s work on the roof and simply add Genzken’s piece. Hmmm … interesting idea. I would assume it would eventually look like colorful toys strewn across a child’s bedroom floor.
In any case, here are our suggestions for the new New Museum addition. And, as you can tell, our renditions aren’t exactly to scale.
