Art: White Bouncy Castle

When my friend Anita sent me the link to this art installation my jaw dropped…and then I had the urge to book a flight to Berlin to see it – and jump on it – in person!

The White Bouncy Castle is the work of artist William Forsythe and is open to visitors of Berlin until July 14. Although the exhibit has travelled to a few places since 1997 it has yet to make its way to Canada. I’d say now is a good time!

Mr. Forsythe has quite the bio. Raised in New York, he trained as a ballet dancer in Florida and danced and choreographed all over the world. He has created numerous films and installations, has lectured at universities and cultural institutions around the world and is also the creator of The Forsythe Company. Oh – and he also holds an honorary doctorate from The Julliard School in NYC. Simply impressive!

I must have travel on the brain (again) because I keep being drawn to very cool hotels. Today we travel to Berlin and check into the stylish Michelberger Hotel.

I’ve travelled a fair bit around Europe (most often Switzerland and Paris: read this, this, thisthis, this, this, and this) but I have yet to visit Berlin. What do you think? Should I add it to my travel wish list?
