Our New Salon

Just kidding. Let's call it self-portrait à la Pompadour. Taken in Nicole Cohen's fun, interactive video installation at the Getty.
Please Be Seated "Allows you to interact with the Getty Museum's 18th-century French chairs. The installation blends footage from decorative arts galleries in the Getty Museum and three French museums with live video captured by a surveillance camera. As you sit in reproductions of the original chairs, you become part of the installation, virtually entering historic recreations of 18th-century French spaces." Grand, giggly, and refreshing.
