Basia Irland. River water is frozen, carved into the form of a book, embedded with an "ecological language" or "riparian text" consisting of local native seeds, and placed back into the stream. The seeds are released as the ice melts in the current.
David Horvitz. This was a French bell made in 1742. The bell was melted down at a German foundry. All of its metal was formed into 47 small hand-bells. These bells, each held by one person, will be rung at local noon each day of the New York Art Book Fair. Performers will gather together and ring the bells as if the old bell still existed. They will then disperse into fair, fragmenting, falling out of sync, re-distributing time throughout the space.
