Art installations are so much fun, they’ve become items on people’s to-go list. Plus, you’ll feel super excited because hey, you’ve something new to add to your Instagram feed!

Chances are, you’ve been to enough art installations to experience the disparate atmosphere that will trigger your five senses. And what will trigger your sixth sense? Maybe the people. The different types of people you meet will either make or break your whole arty-farty experience but, take some time to laugh it off because you might just be one of them!

Not only the posers lie on the floor. Instagram Boyfriends are expected to, too! They will do about anything to please their other half, to make sure they have photos better than any of their friends! *awwww so sweet*
