Having fun in the coffee shop at the Biennale disappointment with the AMerican and French Pavillions

Dear Shaded Viewers,

We decided to take a break between visits to various country pavillions and had fun taking pics in the lively cafe installation.

Both David and I were rather disappointed with both the American and the French pavillions. US looked like a school project and for talking about clean air, the place smelled of plastic and the French pavillion was very institutional and not interesting but later I'll show you the highlights: Poland and Austria and Serbia was pretty good too.

American Pavillion

The way it worked for the American Pavillion, you pulled the shades down and the text block rises

The French Pavillion, there were some talking heads videos
