At MoMA enjoying the second of two solo piano concerts by Philip Glass, performed from inside Brazilian artist Carlito Carvalhosa’s huge installation that you see in the picture. A spiral shaped installation made of soft white fabric draped from the ceiling and down to the floor. Inside it are four microphones which pick up the sound of people talking as they walk through the installation and playing it back through a series of speakers hanging from the ceiling or taped to the wall while facing the wall. The auditory part of the installation was off for the concert but I assume it would be a symphony of muffled voices coming from all directions. Beautiful looking and well complementing Glass’ playing.
