We’ve dragged our kids through museums all around the world, and sometimes I wonder what they think. Like this piece on display right now at the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC for instance. Do they see a symbol of our decaying humanity as depicted by a man made of wax, slowly melting away as lit flames devour his head and he turns into a puddle on the floor?
Or do they see a huge birthday candle in the shape of a man, and wonder where the giant cake is? Hmmmm.
