Banana Wall

Banana Wall

Ever saw those Tagalized Sesame Street episodes where they have the letter “B” and a picture of a banana and the voice over says “Titik B… Buh… Saging!”? Oh well, those probably why we have a generation of demented kids. But this post is nowhere near Sesame Street, or its horrendous Tagalized version. What you just see here is a wall of bananas. Yup, a banana wall. Attractive to chimps and banana lovers alike.

This here’s featured in an interactive exhibition by artist Stefan Sagmeister. Prior to this, it wasn’t a familiar name but with his bio indicating that he’s done album cover art for not-so-known bands like The Rolling Stones,Talking Heads and Lou Reed (Hehehe.).

Bananas. A wall of bananas. I just find it sugoi. That’s all. Read on for the press release of the exhibit.

Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far, an interactive exhibition by Stefan Sagmeister, opens at Deitch Projects on January 31, 2008. The exhibition will include works that have a life of their own, transforming throughout the exhibition as viewers engage with them. Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far is timed to coincide with the release of a new book of the same title, which surveys Sagmeister’s illustrious career.

Stefan Sagmeister is one of today’s most innovative and influential graphic designers. His conception and application of graphic design goes above and beyond traditional notions of the practice, taking it to the realm of performative and conceptual art, painting and sculpture. Sagmeister is most widely known for his album cover artwork for bands like The Rolling Stones,Talking Heads and Lou Reed, and for books, like Mariko Mori’s Wave UFO for the Kunsthaus Bregenz, which function as sculptural objects.
