Night in Bloom

This is my last post from the Dumbo Arts Festival. Here, we see Jae Hi Ahn's patch of underwater flora which embraces the shore of the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park with the Manhattan Bridge as backdrop. The sculpture created a lot of interest - it was one of the most visually prominent works outdoors with its bright plastic colors. The installation was part of an outdoor group of works called Project Glow - click here to see works nearby, including Sparkling Air with its sparkling sequins. Jae appears to be quite an active artist - you can read her resume here or an artist's statement here. The afternoon I was there, I got to meet her; Jae was on site taking photos of her work - that's her in the upper right photo. BTW, click on the photo to enlarge it and take note of her earrings :)

Impressive work Bryan, full of vibrancy and colour.

Really lovely and I like the title of the installation. I can't see her earings too well, but think I get the idea. Great that you got to catch her on film. Did you ask her to visit your blog?

Beautiful photo with the backdrop. What was it made out of?

The sculpture was made from colored plastics. And I always email subjects and let them know if I blog them.
