Premiered at the Brooklyn Lyceum in November 2009, Ahern's seNSATE runs for three hours in a cyclical loop. Viewers may drop in and leave at any point during those times, and they will freely move around to follow the flow of action in various pockets of space beneath Wall Street.

Giving themselves away at every moment...

A luminous summer evening. Dancers slip through breezecloudsmusic at the river's edge. I still get a powerful little thrill as I look through my photographs.

The Met: up on the roof and elsewhere

All photos (c)2010, Eva Yaa Asantewaa

Most shots were taken at Doug + Mike Starn's Big BambĂș: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop installation in the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, Metropolitan Museum of Art. On view through October 31, weather permitting. Read about this exhibit here and here.

Also of interest this summer at the Met:

Picasso's exhilarating linoleum cuts, which finally made me skid to a halt, heart aflutter, as I tried to race through most of Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I'm going back and taking a much longer look at everything but, in particular, those exciting prints. Through August 15.

American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity. My guilty pleasure, only because I discovered that I love that drapey, delicately glittery, Isadora Duncan-ish Bohemian look (1900s) and could barely pull myself away from that particular room in the exhibit. Just call me a femme-inist!

Hipsters, Hustlers, and Handball Players: Leon Levinstein's New York Photographs, 1950-1980. Grit and wit. Levinstein's spontaneity inspires me:
In my photographs, I want to look at life--at the commonplace things as if I just turned a corner and ran into them for the first time. (Leon Levinstein, 1954)
Through October 17.
