L’Ouvert en DesCours

After weeks of coordination, testing, building, packing, driving and assembly we are happy to share some pictures of our Descours 2010 installation in the New Orleans French Quarter.  The show officially opens this Friday December 3,2010 and will run for 10 days.  If you have the opportunity to check it out we would love to hear from you.

A friend of mine wrote this to me when she learned of our winning entry, I thought it was a poignant thought worth sharing.  “I love any event that brings installations to ordinary places. Especially when years later, you pass by the same place you think, ‘One night I came here and there was this big glowing structure…’ Installations always makes me feel like I was at the right place, at the right time. I was walking down one of the streets in London this summer, and there was a piano outside, in the middle of a small plaza. This college kid stopped, put down his backpack, and played a beautiful piece on it. Then he left, and all of us incompetent non-players stood looking at the piano like a bunch of sad monkeys wondering where the music went. But worse than monkeys, we were too embarrassed to try to make the music ourselves! Long live installations, for taking us out of our element for just a few moments.” -Siren A.
