Warhol

I went for an Andy Warhol exhibition this week. Among the many interesting things at the exhibition was a huge wall with several large mirrors, each of which had an Andy Warhol quotation. There was a crew from a television channel interviewing random people who had come to see the exhibition. The first person I saw being interviewed was a graphic designer from Norway. She was on air, responding to questions like “What do you like about Andy Warhol?” and “How much would you pay to have an original Warhol in your living room?” On the mirror behind her was the line, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”

Saha had gone for the same exhibition a few weeks back. He told me how he saw an absolutely gorgeous lady standing in front of the wall that had the mirrors. Apparently, this lady clearly saw Saha checking her out in the mirror, and very deliberately (and very sexily) adjusted her hair. The quotation on the mirror read, “I am a deeply superficial person.”

I love Warhol.

Forget Andy Warhol! Come back and look at the Invicta poster :D

Why do you hype it so much? If I didn't know better, I'd suspect you had designed it yourself! And for the record, it's not a patch on Warhol.

trust saha to think she was adjusting her hair for him. Good post though.
