CITYSIT – An Interactive Urban Art Experience

As I walked into my office this morning, I noticed in the retail shell space below the Monarch parking garage were several massive chunks of ice surrounding a circle of chairs.  There were intermittent jars of water and candles sitting on the long stretch of windows.

As it turned out, this was an installation by CITYSIT.

You go in and sit for 20 minutes.  No talking, just absorbing the sounds.  Sitting still and shutting my brain off is not something that comes easily, but this was a very cool experience.  You can check it out for yourself tonight at 7pm.

  2. FABULOUS! With a little more silence, perhaps all of us can get along better and with a little more music, we can enjoy each other more too!
