Exhibition: Float 05, 2005

Tower of Babel–On Nature, 2005
Interactive photographic installation

Stathacos’ ongoing project, On Nature, consists of a series of photographs documenting gestures of wishing, like pujas by the Ganges, 9/11 memorials in New York City, fire festivals in Japan, among others. Wrapped around the branches of a tree, the horizontal design of a photograph with images culled from around the world plays on the idea of travel and motion and will be installed to invite viewers to contribute their own gestures of wishing using materials available at the Park during Float.
