Nighttime Magic at the Garden

Night time Magic at the Garden

“Persian Pond and Fiori” by Dale Chihuly at the New York Botanical Garden. The brightly colored forms of Persians resemble whimsical water lily leaves floating on the surface of the water. Individual pieces ranging from 19 to 36 inches in diameter are massed together to make a striking installation evocative of Chihuly’s vision of a fantasy garden. Persians were developed using a technique Chihuly had learned at the centuries-old Venini workshop in Venice, in which a special mold, or “wrap,” is used to create an undulating pattern on the surface of the glass. Over time, these forms have been displayed individually and in groups in gallery and garden settings, and even massed together in arrangements on walls and high overhead, continually subverting the expectations of the viewer.

“1612 Dots” a project by Jonathan Horowitz

"1612 Dots" a project by Jonathan Horowitz

With the instruction to paint a perfect, solid black dot, using only paint and brushes, 1612 people passing through the Oculus at the World Trade Center painted the 1612 dots which make up this installation. Of all 7.49 billion people in the world everyone paints with a different hand and everyone speaks with a different voice, yet “everyone is created equal” “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our ability to recongnize, accept, and celebrate those differences” (quote by Audre Lorde)
