Read a conversation between Diana Balmori and our Director Brett Littman here.
For IDEAS CITY 2015, The Drawing Center presents Balmori Associates’ Meditation Room: Horizon a constructed continuous wall of paper where the overlapping of two dot matrix systems comes together to create a visible horizon. A city is distinguished by the presence of multiple horizon lines stacked one over another. Meditation Room: Horizon explores basic traits of landscape, in this case, the effect of an expansive open horizon – water and sky – inside a busy urban one.
You are invited to meditate on this concept of the horizon and to draw your interpretation. Diana Balmori will consider drawings made during the street festival for inclusion in a book and exhibition that is in the works.
You can find us in Sara D. Roosevelt Park near the corner of Chrystie and Houston.
Produced by Education Director, Aimee Good.
