Grace Cathedral - the third largest cathedral of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States, built in San Francisco as a house of prayer for all people, regardless of their religion. Recently, a magnificent art installation by the artist appeared here Anne Patterson: over a thousand multicolored satin ribbons that descend from the vaulted ceilings.
The installation was named "Graced with Light". In addition to tapes, the artist used the appropriate musical accompaniment, as well as video sequences. The ribbons, according to Anna Patterson, symbolize the faith that connects heaven and earth. The words of prayers, which contain the dreams and aspirations of people, are carried up the ribbon, and streams of divine grace descend from heaven.
The installation will be in the cathedral until the end of February. In total, it took about 20 km of satin ribbons to create it. The colors of the installation were specially selected for the numerous stained-glass windows in order to blend in with the interior of the cathedral. Initially, Anna Patterson, using floss threads, created a tiny layout of the future installation in her studio in Manhattan, it took her eight days to bring the project to life and decorate the Grace Cathedral.
It is noteworthy that many visitors view the installation … lying down. One of the viewers admitted to Anna Patterson that contemplating the descending ribbons is akin to a therapeutic session, during which one can understand what is worth letting go of your life and what should be attracted into it.
Recall that on the site Kulturologiya.RF we wrote about a talented installation located in another ancient cathedral. Bruce Munro's Holy Soul is a bold experiment that transformed Salisbury Cathedral in London.
