Walking on Water

Christo’s ‘Floating Piers’ installation finally opens to the public June 18th. The highly-anticipated reveal sees 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric wrap a floating dock that connects various points on Italy’s Lake Iseo. Undulating with the movement of the waves, visitors can now experience the ‘Floating Piers’ as they walk from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which it completely encircles. The 3 kilometer-long walkway extends clear across the water, with surrounding mountains offering a bird’s-eye view of a golden network of passageways that lead in and around the town. The fabric continues along 1.5 kilometers of pedestrian streets in Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio.

5fathom: 5 from james baldwin: ~Those who say it can’t be done are usually interrupted by others doing it. ~Be careful what you set your heart upon, for it will surely by yours. ~Most of us are as eager to be changed as we were to be born, and go through our changes in a similar state of shock. ~People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it very simply: by the lives they lead. ~Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
