    Where did you source your water Mo……I know you have a few favourite water spots that you like to frequent. Should be a great show.

    • Mo Crow says:

      Rod’s jar is
      “The healing waters of Rodd Point collected on this day February 27th, 2015 in honour of many hours of sailboarding”
      & mine
      “The rain cascades from our roof just outside the kitchen door making an urban waterfall”
      (it’s so much better having the water falling outside the kitchen door rather than inside my studio, getting the gutter and fascia board replaced back in October has been such a relief!)

    What a FABULOUS idea!! Hope you’ll have some pics of the actual event. ox

    Oh good, I was wondering what waters you had chosen and what you said about it. This sounds like a wonderful experience. (The fountain on the link you offered looks like the one in the Seattle Center.)

    • Mo Crow says:

      Hi Dana it may well be the fountain in the Seattle Centre I don’t recognize it as one near Central Park which is an amazing new complex built on an old brewery site that is transforming the southern end of the city. The main building One Central Park is a Patrick Blanc showpiece of vertical gardening here’s a link with some pics and just around the corner, the Frank Gehry building has just opened here’s some photos taken by my friend Richard

      • Dana says:

        The vertical gardens are stunning. It will be interesting to see how they age and how the building responds. I have mixed feelings about Frank Gehry buildings. They certainly confront our preconceptions, but I usually get a forboding feeling from them. We have the Experience Music Project at the Seattle Center designed by FG and it always makes me think of annihilation, nuclear holocaust, etc. The museum he designed at Bilbao doesn’t strike me so darkly though.
        Your friend Richard has certainly photographed some amazing places. Thanks for the link.

        • Mo Crow says:

          For the time being while the bucketloads of money are there to maintain the watering system along with the constant weeding and trimming that has been in place since the inception it will work beautifully but as the building and watering system ages it will require a lot more maintenance… will be interesting to see what happens… like the wonderful Lawrence Halprin Freeway Park in Seattle that needed to be revamped when it became too wild back at the turn of the century for safe human interaction ( I loved the wildness when we visited in 1999 but sadly humanity is not always kind) & there has been a lot in the media about the Gehry building since it opened— including jokes about it being a suitable icon for Sydney. A crumpled brown paper bag stuffed with money. Hah hah.

    Thanks for sharing, Mo- although I have walked past this amazing building I didn’t know it was called `One Central Park’. Also your friend Richard’s photos of the Frank Gehry building were interesting as I wondered about the interior. What do you think about the impending move of the Power House to Parramatta? I was shocked as it’s one of the many favourite Sydney places to take our grandchildren!

    • Mo Crow says:

      The interior of the Frank Gehry building is extraordinary, the builders who put it all together deserve a gold star for overcoming gravity!
      We must vote for the Greens & hope they can turn some of these really silly decisions around, The Powerhouse has been undergoing extensive renovations for so long and is only just settling down, have you seen the fantastic jewellery show A Fine Possession yet?

    This looks to be wonderful. It reminds me of Mandy Greer’s installation that many of us were able to participate in…https://mandygreer.wordpress.com/category/mater-matrix-mother-and-medium/
