The Event of a Thread

Last Sunday Chris and I attended Ann Hamilton's installation at the Park Avenue Armory, The Event of a Thread.  We had never been to the armory before.  The atmosphere was straight out of Gangs of New York.  The exhibit itself pretty amazing. If I could only use one word to describe it, it would be whimsical. Ladies in cloaks read from these super long scrolls. You couldn't hear a word they said until you found these random paper bags scattered across the floor of the armory. Inside the bags were speakers to hear the readings. My favorite part of the installation was the swings, duh! All the swings were connected to strings which were connected to this huge piece of fabric in the center of the exhibit. As everyone swung the fabric would move and create these beautiful shapes. We also laid underneath the swaying fabric while listening to the ladies read. It was awesome to say the least.
