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.
