OceanWithoutAShore

The WaterWindow at the NGV an introducton to what lies beyond

What lies beyond I also came to see, it had a connection to the WaterWindow
The new acquisition, a work by Bill Viola, titled: 'Ocean without a shore'
This is best observed with
a feeling of leisure
a feeling of reverence
a feeling of Zen
a feeling of the poetic
or just a feeling of very very slow
Originally this piece was created for the Venice Biennale, 2007
and set in a medieval chapel.
three video panels displaying a waterwall through which people pass
accompanied by an amazing soundtrack
I won't reveal anymore, but,
If you have the time this by itself is worth a visit to Melbourne

I followed this up with a pre-viewing of the movie ELEGY
Ben Kingsley, Penelope Cruz, Dennis Hopper
another poetic, and very moving movie, experience
also worth journey to Melbourne

"honour the playfulness of spirit that lets everyone win"
