Tears become...streams become... by Douglas Gordon

This a conceptual art piece (by Douglas Gordon) that I truly appreciate. In the past week, it could be experienced in the Park Avenue Armory. It involved French pianist Hélène Grimaud playing ten performances of water-themed works on a Steinway in the center of the hall. At first, when the audience arrived, the area was dry. Then the room began to flood, becoming a reflective pool to a stunning effect.
