Steps

As I entered the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome I was unsure if I should continue. The main entrance was covered with broken mirrors. There were statues on the glass but no one was walking near this cracked floor. Was this a work on display? I searched around trying to find a wall didactic and initially couldn’t find one. So, cautiously I decided to walk over the glass. As I made my journey over the fractured mirrors I looked down, watching myself walk over the work of art. I became part of the work. DSC01157
