At Southpoint cinemas, art imitates life and vice versa

Posted by on Fri, Mar 14, 2014 at 10:16 AM


I went to Southpoint Cinemas recently to see Her, one of my favorite films of the last five years. Afterward in the lobby, I noticed one of those arcade games in which you use the jaws of life to extract a toy from a plastic enclosure.

On the wall behind me was a poster for the new Muppets movie (it opens March 20), and its reflection in the plastic created this surreal juxtaposition of life and art.

It was so perfect that I had to shoot it with my iPhone. Tethered to technology, I felt like my life was one step removed from reality, just like the theme of Her.
