“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.
