The EMP in Seattle: Nirvana and Nerdvana Combined in One Museum

2

Feeling rebellious? It's time for you to go to the EMP for the much awaited Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses exhibition. Not into Nirvana? How about seeing the Avatar and Battlestar Galactica exhibitions instead?

The EMP is the coolest museum in the Pacific Northwest. You’ll get to see everything from music, science fiction and pop culture.

Of course, the two biggest stars at the EMP are Pacific Northwest natives Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. Right now you have the opportunity to see the world’s biggest Nirvana exhibition. As a Nirvana fan, I was impressed to see almost a whole floor of artifacts and photography of the band. I had to stop myself from buying everything in the gift shop.

Not a big Nirvana fan? That’s okay. How about going to the Avatar exhibition instead?

You’ll get to see authentic costumes and sketches from the movie. I loved the interactive displays! You can make your own Avatar plant and even become a full-sized Avatar in a big screen.

For a limited time, you can also go to the Battlestar Galactica exhibition seeing the full-sized spaceships (Viper Mark 2, Viper Mark 7 and Cylon Raider) was really impressive.

    Basically there's not much more to say: you can now edit your avatar and description. Now the tough question remains: what to show as your avatar? Yourself? Your favorite photo? Your cat? And what about the description? First or third person? Maybe go for pluralis majestatis?

    My First Indisposable Project

    The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.
