On Friday, May 15th, Creative Time will unveil Drifting in Daylight, a dreamy springtime pathway of art winding through the world’s most iconic park. Drifting in Daylight includes performative, participatory, and perceptual work by artists Spencer Finch, Alicia Framis, Nina Katchadourian, Ragnar Kjartansson, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, David Levine, Karyn Olivier, and Lauri Stallings + glo. This free public exhibition aims to draw visitors into the park’s beautiful north end, much of which has been expertly restored by the Conservancy. The six-weekend show will tempt visitors to transcend their busy lives, losing themselves along a playful trail of sensory experiences.
Central Park, at the very heart (if not the very heart) of New York City, is one of the most inspiring combinations of architecture, landscape design and urban planning to be found anywhere on the face of the earth. It ranks as a symbol of New York City only behind the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. Unlike these two, however, Central Park is dynamic, vibrant; a perpetually changing counterpoint to the brilliant, but static, architectural achievements that surround it.
Central Park breathes. It provides a respite from the struggles that have produced the amazing city that surrounds it. It is a place to reflect, to sigh deeply and feel good about it, to let the tension ebb and allow the strictures and pressures of metropolitan enterprise loosen and unwind.
The park also satisfies that need that resides in so many city dwellers, in an environment that requires dusting plants as often as watering them, that causes us to lavish our attentions upon wallet-sized window boxes and fret over ficus plants that have seen more near death drama than a revival of “Camille”. A need to be near something living, something growing; a need to be near something green that isn’t attached to our cheese.
Central Park is all of these things, and much more.
