While perusing YouTube, I found this video showing a new installation in the Modern Art gallery. So I sought out to see for myself. (The video is really interesting, but also really long - skip to the end to see the final result).
In noticed this piece right away, since I frequently pass through the Met's Modern Art wing. I was thrown by the size and detail — the rope is made out of about a gazillion tiny white beads.
It is amazingly intricate, elegant, and let's face it: reminiscent of a wishing well... and who doesn't like a wishing well! A really nice addition to the works in the corridor that houses Damien Hirst's The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living. More to come on that, I've been holidng out on you :-)
