SONG DONG, WRITING TIME WITH WATER
MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 12 -1 PM
(MILITARY ISLAND AT BROADWAY AND 44TH STREET)
Creative Time and Times Square Alliance present Writing Time with Water,
a special performance by Chinese artist Song Dong. For one hour, in the
center of Times Square, Song Dong will continuously record the time
using water and brush to paint directly onto the concrete surface that
surrounds him. Within this frenetic setting, Song Dong’s modest gesture
compels us to focus on the present by exposing our unthinking
consumption of time.
Writing Time with Water is presented in conjunction with Song Dong’s
video on The 59th Minute.
