Bookmark this website (www.jeffkoonsversailles.com) for those five minutes when your younger child needs to sit in your office while you finish one last thing. In 2009, Versailles hosted an exhibition of artworks by Jeff Koons and made this website. I love the homepage more than I like Jeff Koons’ work. A horizontal line of images of his artwork intersects with a vertical line of photographs of rooms in Versailles. However, the photographs of the rooms have a white cut out in the center. Click on the horizontal or vertical lines to rotate the images and match the positive and negative spaces. This sounds a lot like the directions for any number of preschool educational apps.
