1. The Roof, Floating Clouds Installed at Brookfield Place
The vast and bright space at The Winter Garden, Brookfield Place has been transformed with what appears to be floating clouds, in this site-specific installation entitled, The Roof. Thai artist Pinaree Sanpitak has taken her inspiration from the canopy of palm trees set throughout the Winter Garden. The installation is a suspended sculpture, celebrating collaboration and coexistence. The translucent canopies, made from raw silk, glass fiber, non-woven fabric, wires, hooks, chains, and aluminum modular truss, create a cloud-like structure, floating among the palms, giving all those who pass through and linger in the Winter Garden a sense of “comfort and refuge” in the otherwise bustling space. The Roof will be on view to July 5, 2017 at Brookfield Place, located at 230 Vesey Street.
