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.
