The juxtaposition of these two images got me thinking.
Today there are a couple of completely unrelated events happening, one in space and one on Fifth Avenue. And admittedly I may be stretching the definition of packaging when discussing these events but so be it.
The Hubble Space Telescope, being repaired by a couple of space walking NASA astronauts as this post is being written, has been making staggering contributions to science and our imagination for nearly 20 years. The Guggenheim Museum is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the opening today of a show on its architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
So we have Hubble, a package designed to look outward and discover distant worlds, and the Guggenheim Museum a package designed to enter and discover the artistic universe within.
