rope installation 3 Massive Public Installation from Salvaged Rope

A massive installation consisting of 1.4 million feet of rope has just opened to the public in New York City’s Madison Square Park. The installation is called Red, Yellow and Blue and was created by Orly Genger, who collected nautical rope from various locations and then painted and hand-knotted it to make some impressive sculptural forms that change the whole landscape of the park.

The tradition of knitting carries the sharing of stories and the installation draws on that idea. The repurposed rope brings with it the stories of different locations and by knotting it, a space is created for the words and thoughts of viewers in New York City to complete the work, creating a silent dialogue that waves along.
