Bird's Eye View Challenge: Psychadelic Folkloric Reindeer in Berlin

I took this photo standing on some bleachers at Berlin's Hamburger Bahnhof Museum for Contemporary Art. Artist Carsten Höller's "SOMA" installation consisted of live reindeer milling around, canaries in cages, and mice in mazes. It was trippy (the concept for the piece does include hallucinogenic reindeer urine), over-conceptualized, and super fun. The craziest thing was an elevated bed at the end of the walkway, in which patrons of the museum could spend the night (upon winning a raffle ticket, and putting up a cool $1,325).
