8.19.2010 Kianga Ford

Artist Kianga Ford launched the second episode in her series called You Are Here…a movement, an act, an episode, an ecology. Designed as a site-specific audio experience at the Pavilion for Japanese Art at LACMA, the first part, Way to the Buddha, is designed to accompany visitors as they enter the Pavilion for Japanese Art and ascend the ramp leading to the top. The second part, Way to the Bridge, leads from the top of the ramp to the paintings of Uji Bridge on the lowest level of the Pavilion. The piece was inspired by Ford’s travels during her residency in Japan, where she saw the Uji Bridge and the Hall of the Bosatsus. The text is from Lonely Planet. Original music, courtesy of Emily Lacy.
