Jeanne-Claude and Christo’s installation in Central Park is appealling to me, even if I am so GEEKY that the title made me think of Bill. Her description of it is even more so. We often try to hard to put art into words, or make it about ideas — but I’ll let her say it:
Our works of art are like all good art.
It is good for absolutely nothing else than being a work of art. It is not the symbol, it is not the message, it’s only a work of art.
