Someone, apparently affiliated with the Ontario College of Art and Design, planted a fake bomb at the Royal Ontario Museum and interrupted an AIDS benefit of some kind.
It’s totally inappropriate to interrupt a disease benefit with a fake bomb. Inappropriate but amusing. The fake video of the fake bombing is all right too.
I’m favor of these sorts of things. They’re more interesting than Nuit Blanche and they liven up an evening. I’m sure everyone who attended the benefit felt nice and invigorated, same with the people who are outraged. Even the cops got a night out on the town.
And that thing –the addition– they’ve put on the ROM is frankly enough to turn anyone with any aesthetic sense into a mad bomber. It’s just a red flag in front of a bull. I wish they’d tear it down and try again.
