Until Friday 4/24

Soft Spin

8 AM – 10 PM

Winter Garden

Soft Spin is a sound and sculptural installation designed for the Winter Garden, the iconic Lower Manhattan public atrium at the heart of Brookfield Place. The work features six large-scale fabric forms gracefully swirling overhead, emanating the sounds of intermittent voices in song. Playful tunes, curvaceous hemlines and sundrenched bursts of bright color invite viewers to look up and embrace the unexpected. In a bow to the Winter Garden’s 25-year history as a performing arts space, Soft Spin plays with notions of being in the spotlight, “on display,” or “playing a part.” The audio score fluctuates between individual and group voices singing show tunes in the shower, mirroring theatrical or operatic traditions of chorus and response in a polis—a public place—or the taking of turns in a children’s game.
