I mean, what's not a surprise is that Madoka Magica's getting an exhibit. It was inevitable, given Shaft's propensity for creating exhibit-worthy bizarro aesthetics - frames from the more dialog-heavy scenes in Bakemonogatari could easily be placed in a modern art museum - but that's not what's puzzling me.
What's puzzling me is exactly what the organizers at MOVIC Promote mean when they say the exhibit will "recreate key scenes" from the anime. Using the word "recreate" implies that they won't just be running a clip reel. How will they do it? Are they making dioramas? Re-rendering them as 3D CG? Doing a live stage performance? Interpretative dance?
Me, I'm hoping they do it through sculpture, like an art installation. Imagine a close-up, life-size, 3-D depiction of that most infamous of Madoka scenes. Now that's art!
