Ann Hamilton’s the event of a thread

It is rare that an art installation inspires exuberance in viewers, but also rare that an installation so involves viewers in participating and creating the art.

After a too short run, this show just closed.  I saw it right at the end, but next time Ann Hamilton is at work in my area, I will rush to see her work so that I can go back and back and back.

It was such genius that I forgot it was art, forgot that it had taken an amazing lot of work to install, and just thrilled to swinging and watching the swings move the curtain, while the curtain moved the swings, and the earth spun perfectly in harmony.
