Sharon Ma, hello, Flow.15 Art and Music at Randall's Island

May 2015 to November 2015
Randall's Island Park, Manhattan

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.

Description:

Located at the touchdown of the 103rd Street pedestrian bridge from Manhattan, Sharon Ma’s hello welcomes and celebrates the neighbors of Randall’s Island Park by highlighting the enthusiasm and warmth generated by this simple word. Comprising five ten-foot-tall letters planted with succulent plants, this living, vertical garden functions as the “voice” of the landscape, calling to all who pass. Ma’s goal is to invite photography with the piece, extending the medium into a public space and a larger scale in order to record and share visitor interaction. Ma’s hello invokes familiar “Greetings from ...” postcards of a previous era, and calls upon us to create and share our own digital messages with Randall’s Island Park as background.

FLOW.15 is presented by Randall’s Island Parks Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event.
