Viewing the local antiquities

 
 
The evidence of things not seen 


I went to see the gates by Christo in Central Park yesterday.



The hemmed saffron panels—or curtains; banners; skirts—hang at the angle determined by wind prevailing, and move when the breeze freshens. Where one panel hangs still in shadow, a second, not ten feet away, will shake and flap, moved by the unseen into the brightening light.

Christo devised and built instrumentation to detect the invisible: The unseen, moving over the face of the city.

Christo enabled the city to blush.
