On the Roof of the Met

Every Spring and Summer, the Metropolitan Museum of Art commissions an artist to create an installation for the Cantor Roof Garden on top of the Met.  This work is called "The Theater of Disappearance" and is by Argentinian artist Adri├ín Villar Rojas.  One part of the installation is a series of tables with objects scattered on the top in monochromatic white.  And the objects are scattered everywhere and tipped over.  What makes it all interesting is the contrast of the white tables with the skyline of New York in the background.  There are also sculptures of people as well, but these are no ordinary sculptures.  Note the one below.  The arms outside the frame of the picture only go as far as the elbow.  There are other sculptures as well, in monochromatic black.  It is an amazing exhibit!  Please click on the photos to see them in more detail.
