From today's Ithaca Times:
In Collegetown, nestled in between Cornell's Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts and Sheldon Court (a grad student dorm), North Carolina sculptor Patrick Dougherty has realized Half a Dozen of the Other, one of his signature tree branch installations. Six woven twisting towers form a V-shape, pointing away from the street. Each is supported by a living tree. The trees poke in and out, acting as rigid counterparts to the towers' fluid dance-like movement. From some angles the sculptures appear as domes, from others like frayed rope.
More here. Pictures.

Relating art to outdoor space reminds me of the Orange-colored Gates in Central Park, NYC. People milling around the park enjoyed playing with art in the context of wind, trees and rocks.

In Ithaka, it will be interesting to follow the relationship of the art to trees through the seasons.
