Internationally acclaimed visual artist Ann Hamilton creates a dream-like immersive experience, complete with pigeons, swings, and text (both spoken and written), specifically for the Drill Hall at the Park Avenue Armory. A massive multimedia installation, the event of the thread is composed of a series of crossings, much like a piece of cloth and its constituent threads. Forty-two swings that power the movement of a large white cloth in the center of the room invite visitors to climb aboard. Other elements of the work include two attendants reading philosophical texts aloud, homing pigeons sitting attentively in cages and a writer trying to put into words what he or she is experiencing. At the end of the day, a vocalist appears in the balcony and serenades the pigeons. Hamilton succeeds in creating a bewitching and surreal universe and hopes it draws attention to the interconnectedness of our actions.
