New York post-show - U2 as museum objects.

New York post-show - U2 as museum objects. Discussions with the Guggenheim for a PopMart video installation.

Morning meeting with the Directors of the Guggenheim Gallery in SoHo, regarding a possible collaboration with them on a PopMart video installation. All the band present, bar Larry, plus myself, Catherine Owens & Bess. Much interesting discussion and as with all things U2, we went in with one idea and came out with twenty five, but hopefully something productive will come of it. They are installing a huge video wall in the gallery which will be the main feature - although it is Zoo TV style video cubes, so I am attempting to introduce them to LED screen technology. It could be a great opportunity to display the work of the animators we have been working with throughout the PopMart project.

Within the bands entourage (certainly by comparison to the crews clockwork scheduling) travel departure times are often a little loose. This morning was especially so, due to three contradictory memos which had been emailed out last night and this morning.

I was planning on resurrecting the tour diary today, being the day we were scheduled to fly to Auckland for the load-in tomorrow. However, its now old news that the remainder of the tour dates have been postponed, so Im not going anywhere further than the corner cafe. Its been a very weird week indeed - much akin to driving into a wall.
