33 Gorenflo Gap

THE BLUE ROPES or “33 Gorenflo Gap, Step 1, after four years” was open to the public for two long weekends in September 1993.

“A temporary 8 acre park. Wilderness overlaid with manmade grids, 5 miles of taut ropes over the landscape, pathways and trails, sound stations and markers. Faced with such a work intensive, yet short-lived piece, and the investigation into meanings emphasized by the sound, viewers will be led to question the ‘why of art’, its purpose beyond any potential use and market value.”


The project was funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

All along (4 years, many seasons), photographs and films were taken. A documentary film and an installation of panoramics and collages on canvases are still in progress.
