NYC's "Desire Lines"

Paris-based sculptor Tatiana Trouve has wound enough colored rope onto oversized spools to cover every inch of Central Park’s 212 pathways. Trouve spent over two years preparing for the exhibit, which will be displayed at Doris C. Freedman Plaza until August 30th. Each pathway, or spool, represents a different historical march or important walk that has taken place in our society. Trouve’s work highlights the connection between something as seemingly insignificant as a walk in the park and something as impactful as a march for social change. After viewing the exhibit, the perception of what a walk is may change.
