Last weekend, I visited this gorgeous place called Storm King Arts Center about half hour north of where I live. There are really no words or photos that could get across the grand magnificence and beauty of this place. But, you ain’t getting away that easy cause I gotta say something!
Simply put, it’s a sculpture park. An expansive natural oasis with sculpture sprinkled everywhere! Literally. Every. Where. Not a bad place to spend 4 hours of my life. And I plan to spend more hours of my life there in the near future (yes, Sara, that means with you!).
So, at first, I put together a photo collage of various sculptures and was not impressed by this presentation format. They were all kind of blending into each other and no one photo or sculpture really stood out. Therefore, I decided to post one pic at a time. Each one deserves your individual attention and mindful observation. What better one to start with then the mirrored fence which messed with my visual perception and created quite a bit of intrigue from onlookers. Lots of us sat there and took photos looking into the fence or photos of each other on opposite sides of the fence or just stared at it for a while. As I walked up to it, I was confused by the material used … Am I seeing through something or is it reflecting back to me? Craaazy!
Holy shit, I just had a deep thought (shocking, right?) … When I reflect back on myself, it often allows me to see through something. Something deep inside that maybe I’ve been holding onto for many years, like a perception of myself that isn’t actually the truth. Bam! That totally makes sense. See, there is so much to Storm King then the eye can see in these photos. If you live near here, get yo ass there and see what comes up for you or just enjoy the shit out of it cause it’s AWEsome!!!!
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s 2-dimensional sculpture of choice …
