Gypsy Pond Music

 

continued

An earlier installation featured a labyrinth on the pond itself, in which a remote-control boat triggered different sounds and lights as it made its way through the maze. In 2001, following the events of 9/11, the class responded with a variation of Japanese lantern ceremonies that commemorate the dead. To memorialize the victims, they floated on the pond intricate constructions made of laminated rice paper and balsa wood, with lit candles in each.

Some claim that the pond is in the shape of a piano. While the installation is open from noon to 9 p.m., October 28 through November 1, possibly the best time to experience it is at night, when the lights are playing on the watery "piano."

What will Gypsy Pond Music XI be? The only way to know is to go see--and hear and participate in it--for yourself.    (end of article)
