Spiral Vertigo

Guggenheim Museum,  New York,  February 2017

For me, the oval spiral of the Guggenheim is both calming and exciting.  Its own artistic power is both a host and a competitor to the artworks on display here.

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it opened in 1959.  The restrictions imposed by fitting into a city, resulted in a tall, compact structure, contrasting strongly with his horizontally expansive rural structures, such as Taliesin West.

This is the view from the top, around 28 metres high beneath a stunning skylight; a view so fascinating that even Mrs Vertigo was compelled to hang over the wall and take in the view.  With my camera lens joining in, of course.
