“Send me Aggression” – “The Girl with the Knife in Her Hand”; Yoshitomo Nara
This is one of the coolest things I have come across in awhile… The Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco now offers a chance to see many of the hidden gems from their collection through text message. Just send a request to the number 572-51, with the words “send me” followed by just about anything (Nouns, colors, emotions, etc.) and they will send you back a picture of one of their pieces related to that word. There are more details and information in this article that I read on an art blog called “Hyperallergic”.
Of course, I had to try it for myself :
Text message to 572-51; “send me water”…
Richard N. Kauffman, “Columbine Lake, Evening”, ca. 1956
“Send me bicycles”…
Of course, there is not a match for every word you may come up with, but try a few and see what they come up with. Then a miniature version of each work is yours to keep forever.
