Fun with Depth

It's been an interesting weekend filled with fun, mystery, and intrigue, but more on the latter two later. This post will be about the fun. Because we had an appointment way downtown on Saturday afternoon, we decided to slowly make our way there by first spending the morning doing something fun by checking out Art in Paradise, or the 3D Museum, in Bangkok.

Originally started in Pattaya, followed by another one in Chiang Mai, the Bangkok branch opened in February of this year on the fourth floor of a shopping mall (what in Bangkok isn't located in a mall?). The intricate art in the museum was created by thirteen Korean artists and is presented in a three-dimensional format, allowing viewers to be a part of it. Markers on the floor indicate the best angles from which to take photos for the best 3D effect. There are also photos demonstrating which poses work best with each scene.

We had a lot of fun with the art and the scenes, trying for different, silly poses. Even my son, who usually doesn't like being in the spotlight, asked to pose in every scene and made sure we took photos of all of his poses. It was a good thing we had such a relaxing morning because our afternoon appointment would turn out to be of a more serious and darker nature. As with most of daily life in Thailand, even a mundane event such as a meeting can turn into a fascinating story.
