“The Event of a Thread” installation by Ann Hamilton

Ann Hamilton / The Event of a Thread video by paul octavious
The Event of a Thread” installation by Ann Hamilton just closed at The Armory. I was dying to go after seeing several images of it pop up on Instagram last week, but lucky for us designer/photographer Paul Octavious shot a little video of the installation.

Actually, I’m not sure if lucky is the right word, I’m now a bit more depressed I didn’t get to go. Watch below!

    Wow! completely immersive magical work! Its like a giant ice-burg/cliff/ Gaudi cathedral spires something…. constantly morphing and evolving its form! BEAUTIFUL !

    I was at this show. It was very surreal interaction of either being on the swings or under the cloth or standing on the balcony observing it all.

Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.

Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
