NO.14 the event of a thread

the event of a thread is made of many crossings of the near at hand and the far away: it is a body crossing space, is a writer's hand crossing a sheet of paper, is a voice crossing a room in a paper bag, is a reader crossing with a page and with another reader, is listening crossing with speaking, is an inscription crossing a transmission, is a stylus crossing a groove, is a song crossing species, is the weightlessness of suspension crossing the calling of bell or bellows, is touch being touched in return. It is a flock of birds and a field of swings in motion. It is a particular point in space at an instant of time. ? Ann Hamilton

I don?t know when I like it to be honest, maybe it?s because the movements in this installation are caused by viewers who swinging in their free will, This installation have a great interaction with audiences, I was amazed by how clam and exciting those viewers look like, I never seen this event of a thread in person, so I won?t know what?s the felt in this installation, but the magical thing is even though I wasn?t there, I still touched by it, it?s a warm gentle breath of wind that I felted made me fall in love with this installation.
