Anne Patterson at Grace Cathedral
The other day Mabel and I trekked up the hill to check out artist-in-residence Anne Patterson's installation inside Grace Cathedral. Composed of hundreds of ribbons in different colors suspended from the ceiling, this is one of those things that is much more than the sum of its parts. Although I could not stop taking pictures of it, its real magic cannot be captured in a still photo. See, the thing is, there are enough little breezes wafting about inside the big cavernous space of the cathedral at all times that the ribbons are constantly gently fluttering, and when the light hits their moving surfaces it (the light) seems to pour down their lengths like silent rain. And it is mesmerizingly beautiful.
