If you are in the Philadelphia area over the next couple of months, I highly recommend checking out the various Philagrafika exhibits. Moore has a couple pretty awesome exhibits up during it. The one below is mind blowing (and you have to wear hospital booties or socks to view it). Here is the copy from the site.

"In Regina Silveira’s Mundus Admirabilis and Other Plagues, vinyl is incorporated along with screenprinting on porcelain and embroidery on fabric. The installation invokes the mythology of biblical plagues. Instead of locusts, hail, or pestilence, Silveira uses a domestic setting invaded by common pests to suggest that the plagues in our own time are the images that contaminate our everyday existence: crime and violence, degradation of the environment, corruption, and other ills that invade our lives and psyches."

And this is on the wall. Contrived, perhaps, but I still enjoy most things to do with bicycles and geniuses.
