There’s some new art on the High Line. Brooklyn-based artist Carol Bove was specially commissioned by Friends of the High Line to create Caterpillar, an installation of seven sculptures dotted around the landscape on the High Line at the Rail Yards. Now through May 2014, you can reserve free tickets for public walks.
Unlike most art installations that I’ve visited, Bove leaves the viewer to their own devices in understanding and interpreting the art, giving them with no information or background about the individual pieces. I don’t think they even have names. It will be interesting to see how the wild plants grown up and around the art as the seasons progress.

I’m very much not a video person. I’ve never really had any desire to get into the art form. This however, is some different. Taking a photo is not always enough to capture the movement and energy in a scene that I want to. This is where the video mode on my camera comes in. It allows me to capture 5-10 second clips of life’s flow. Expect to be seeing more of these short clips in the future.

It’s a sunny day today but we’ve had lots of rain the last two days. Having some English heritage in me, I love the rain (as it happens to rain frequently in England) and I love shooting in it. Just be sure to have a towel ready when you finally get back inside.
