Pink city, Green branches revisited

A collaborative installation with Yael Brotman

As for me, I know nothing else but miracle,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or stand under the trees in the woods.
-Walt Whitman

Life does not and cannot stand still. Its beauty rests in impermanence. We look at nature and the human imagination, the forest and the city and the encounter of the everyday miracle of a new baby with wonder. Growth is an underlying theme in the installation. It implies movement, which is present in the upward thrust of the pink city and the swaying motion of the green branches; in the placement of the geometric shapes; and in the three tiny figures that embody care and bind one generation to another.

This is a collaborative reimagining of the installation originally created for Impact 10, Santander, Spain 2018.
