This Too Shall Pass...


So I'm in NYC for a few days and staying at my usual place just off Union Square. Yesterday afternoon aa I was heading back to my room I came across this art installation by David Datuna. The reason I know who the artist is because as I was photographing the instillation a young woman who helped install it came up to first t ask if I was with the media, and then to tell me a bit about it. The instillation is made of blocks of dry ice which spell out the word Trump. It is the artist's response to Number 45 pulling out of the Paris Agreement. The title of the piece is This Too Shall Pass. What's interesting is that the artist used dry ice, which is a frozen gas (carbon dioxide), rather than regular ice (which of course is frozen water). The instillation, as it melts, doesn't leave a puddle. It simply dissipates into thin air...




Urban Simplicity.
