The Gates


Christo and Jeanne-Claude

Saffron-colored posts and lintels outfitted with skirts or half-curtains to match. The resemblance at the start of installation is to the Golden Gate Bridge, this is fortuitous, the structure evokes building frames before the cloth is unfurled, which adds a window effect or laundry. This makes for a course of human habitation in direct contrast to the bare trees and open sky.
