Please Touch at the DIA


"Please do not touch the artwork"--except this piece. You can see what thousands of soft fingertips have done to the sculpture. DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts.)

Oh can you imagine the bacteria on that thing!

I'm with goda...yikes!

Probably not as bad as one might imagine (though not great) because the metal itself is antibacterial.

Where are you, Goda?

Poor thing must have been much larger before people began touching him.

The sculpture is nice and I'll take gladly the 'risk'!

Sculpture should be touched! Wash your hands after touching it. Bacteria is in the air and I'm not planning to stop breathing for a while yet. :)

It is very nice--I'm not too hung about germs. I believe Goda is studying to be a nurse. So she's prolly hypersensitive to those kind of thoughts.

YUP!
