A Rope To The Divine

20130908-225500.jpg

Part of Orly Genger’s “Red, White, and Blue.” Displayed at Madison Square Park, comprised of over 1.4 million feet of undulating, layered rope, and covered in 3500 gallons of paint. It uses a principle like weaving on a massive scale, something man made that looks unbelievably natural. Encouraging the perception of a familiar scene in a different way…

“God” or the divine “can be realized through all paths. All religions are true. The important thing is to reach the roof. You can reach it by stone stairs or by wooden stairs or by bamboo steps or by a ROPE. You can also climb up by a bamboo pole.”
Ramakrishna

Or perhaps weave the rope, hold on as you paint some stairs, and dance up them to the stars…

    I saw that rope/ sculpture! I loved the rich blue of the rope contrasting the natural green grass/ trees surrounding. Is it still up? I saw it last spring.

      Exactly! I never would have thought I would enjoy something like that so much. Yes, but I believe it is leaving any day now to go to Boston. Hopefully they will put something else interesting in the park! Thanks for the comment…
