Fresh off of his dynamic Public Art Fund Commission, Tear of the Cloud, which was on view at Riverside Park this past October, Guild Hall is pleased to turn over the entire museum to this noted artist who will delve into the subject of water and notions of “magical thinking” for the East End. Oursler has developed a new multimedia series of works which incorporate glass, computers and water. Thematically, the ubiquitous element of water becomes a repository for our belief systems as the artist references the development of cartography and the subsequent vanishing of sea monsters, Hollywood movies and evil maritime spirits, counterculture and the pseudoscience of water memory.
