Our first stop was the Baltimore Museum of Art. A jewel of a museum, we fell in love with works in the Contemporary collection. Two in particular fascinated me and I'd like to share one with you.
As we strolled through the contemporary galleries, a sound could be heard coming from another room. I assumed it was a video playing and so was pleasantly surprised when I turned a corner and spied the source.
Strands of beads and hanging device
Simple commercial beads strung
and hung across the entryway.
The sound coupled with the movement
Hanging water was my thought even before stepping inside to read the information on the piece. I stood and gaped, fascinated, wanting to just sit on the floor and enjoy watching the movement until I became part of the piece as well.
And so I did...kind of.
I sat the camera on the floor, ran my hand across the beads and continued to photograph.
