New stuff at MCA

Hi everyone! Last Sunday my mum and I went to the MCA for a Kids Committee meeting about the Family Tours of the exhibition Today Tomorrow Yesterday and to try the Family Space that is based on a new exhibition called Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything. Tatsuo Miyajima is the first exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere for this artist. It's about numbers counting down from 9. At the end of it, it left me wondering. 
In the Family Space there is a room which has white circles on the floor that you jump on and when you jump on them they make a sound and draw a line on a screen and if you jump on them a lot the lines form a big prism. At a particular point the room goes dark and the white circles turn into lily pads and a recording of a guided meditation comes on and if you move on the lily pads they change colour but if you stay still they stay the same. In another room there is a magnet board where you can arrange magnets to create numbers and there is a camera that takes a picture of the magnet board every 9 seconds and plays the pictures really fast to make a stop motion film. In the same room as the magnet board there are tables where you can make light drawings by punching holes into a black circle of paper and you can contribute your light drawing to a shadow constellation by hanging it up with everyone else’s in a hallway near the room or you can take it home. And if you want to find out about the Family Tours or you want to book for one (if the tickets haven't sold out already) go here.  

I recommend going to TodayTomorrow Yesterday. 
I hope you liked this week's post. See you next time, S.
PS. I'm one of the two voices that you might hear for this exhibition on the MCA app!
