St. John the Divine has transformed itself into a holy place of contemplation, and this time one reflects on The Value of Water: the art of water, the scarcity of water, and the sanctity of water. Dozens of artists are shown together, smattered throughout the far flung chapels and corners, creating a unique convergence of meditation around that compound of hydrogen and oxygen which makes up approximately 60-70% of us. Above, Bill Viola’s video installation rumbles from one corner. In another corner, South African artist William Kentridge shares his take on the precious resource, only his take is the stop-animation that he’s become so famous for. Check it out: it shows until March 25, 2012, so there’s plenty of time. For a longer review, check out Word City Studio, a collaboration between Rachel Aydt and Media Studies faculty member Kathleen Sweeney. Check out her video take on the show at WordCityStudio.com.
