What a present!

This is cool; New York City has decided to let Christo wrap Central Park (New York Times link, registration required). I remember how disappointed I was when I arrived in Germany in 1995 one day after his wrapping of the Reichstag ended. (More pictures of the Reichstag here.) If they had extended it, the way so many Germans were clamoring, I could have seen it, although it would have been a hike from Karlsrühe, where I was staying, to Berlin. Still, it would have been less of a hike than New Jersey to Berlin. So anyway, I'm glad to see that he's gotten the okay to do this. I'll make sure I don't miss this one.

I loved the umbrellas (christojeanneclaude.net/um.html) which were up in So. Cal. when I was in high school...unfortunately, I seem to have lost the photos I took of them on a trip to Bakersfield. it was so foggy, and so pretty.

Neat!

I've never seen one of their installations in person, but I look forward to it when they do Central Park. I remember seeing the film the Maysles brothers made about him wrapping a canyon in California. The professor in the course on documentaries where I saw it pointed out that the editing in the film was so skillful that it was easy to miss the fact that the Maysles missed the climax of the entire exercise when the curtain was unveiled.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
