Preparations for vertical weaving

As the leaves continue to turn red and orange the orange string appears to completely transition to hot pink.  A second organic circle is laid with a chair near the lake positioning the act of observation, contemplation or intimate performance?  Screws in diagonal positions were placed on each new branch.  We must negotiate a woven tapestry of light and thus the work must stop to be positioned and then woven to integrate the existing installation.  This will involve hoisting the piece up the the highest point possible, only to be swayed by the wind and then tying it back so that each loop placed requires a pull of the main cord to tighten it.  The erection of a temporary architecture is required to reach the heigh of the swaying branches and a desire for an artificial post in the water may be required.

This is an act of gesturing towards an architectural conversation about space and form.


Photos to come.
