The Event of a String

I saw a cool conceptual art installation in New York called “The Event of the String” which comprised of a big room with giant swings and a curtain threaded across the middle. The interesting aspect of the piece was the participation of the audience. The artwork would essentially not exist without its participants. And so somehow, the audience member is simultaneously perceiving the artwork and a part of it.

It’s also super fun to be on a giant swing.
