Yesterday's pic was part of The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama, opening this Saturday at San Antonio Museum of Art. The shoes in yesterday's pic are part of the exhibition preview open now. The shoes belonged to the Dalai Lama, and were given to Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury for her work Easy Spirit. Fleury used a Kirlian camera using high voltage electricity to make a photogram. The darting rays that seem to surround objects in Kirlian photography are thought by some to be the object's "aura," captured on film. When informed that his aura might be seen emanating from his shoes, the Dalai Lama is reported to have laughed, and noted that the shoes had been resoled several times, and the resulting aura might well be that of his cobbler.
