You’re probably wondering what this is. If you’re in NYC this month, make sure to visit Ernesto Neto’s “anthropodino” installation, commissioned by and housed at the Park Avenue Armory. Cavernous tunnels, fabric stalactites filled with aromatic spices (including a red, lavender room) and plenty of nooks to run around, discover, and lounge in, make this the ultimate in sensory experience. I’ve been a fan of Neto’s biomorphic scultpures, but this is the first time I’ve seen an installation of his in person. Not surprisingly, the kids were in heaven.

    This looks amazing. I had tentatively planned to go with my family tomorrow (Sun), but now it’s a definite must see.

    Sooo cool. I adore that first photo and envy everything you have at your fingertips there in NYC.

    I second what Siri said! That looks like an absolute blast. Chance of something like that coming to St. Louis = 0.00%. However, it is really neat seeing NYC through your family’s eyes. :) Love your blog!

    Thanks Jenna for sharing this: we who are “off somewhere else” can’t get there, but are so fortunate and grateful to see it through your excellent camera’s eye!
