I have encountered photographs and various articles on Prada Marfa countless times. However, nothing could have prepared me for an actual encounter with this site specific art installation. I mean, could anything be more out of place? 360 degree views of a vast, barren desert landscape, dead quiet, and bam! there it is. The brain tries to make sense of this odd disconnection. Prada Marfa is so simple yet brilliant. It challenges perceptions and it's ironic and humorous, and I like that.
