'This World and Nearer Ones' at Governors Island

Today we went to Governors Island to catch the opening of Creative Time's "This World & Nearer Ones", with work by Edgar Arceneaux, AA Bronson and Peter Hobbs, The Bruce High Quality Foundation (see below about this 'foundation'), Adam Chodzko, Tue Greenfort, Jill Magid, Teresa Margolles, Anthony McCall, Nils Norman, Susan Philipsz, Patti Smith and Jesse Smith, Tercerunquinto, Tris Vonna-Michell, Mark Wallinger, Klaus Weber, Lawrence Weiner, Judi Werthein, Guido van der Werve, and Krzysztof Wodiczko.

It was also a chance to catch up with our friends Tricia and Hermann, who just arrived yesterday from Los Angeles... We've missed them being in NY- I couldn't get over how much Hermman has grown!

"I feel like I'm covered in yogurt!" said Hermann while applying sunscreen.

Outside the River Cafe next to the Fulton Ferry (where we took the Water Taxi to the island).

The carousel in DUMBO.
I liked the Wind Chimes art installation on the island...

I also liked the film, Isle of the Dead, by the Bruce High Quality Foundation (which is a social commentary based on a body of work by a ficticious artist). Click on the picture below to read a brief description of the film... I find the whole concept of the Bruce High Quality Foundation amusing.

Waiting for the film to start, parts of which I thought were interesting...

Click here for a little more info on the film and the Bruce High Quality Foundation- you can also see a trailor for the film and listen to a song sung by a bunch of zombies.
