A view of the umbrella canopy installation by ASIR Studio in conjunction with Bright Light temporary public art projects, Yue Shan Courtyard, 39 East Pender, Vancouver Chinatown. I enjoyed this graceful structure. It appealed to me for so many reasons. It was poetic, ephemeral, lyrical, surprising and mysterious; thoughtful, playful, delightful and generous. With its intriguing qualities of repetition and rhythm, it was sensitive to both the time of year (our rainy season) and to its site, floating atop an historic courtyard in Chinatown.
update: the installation was dismantled at the end of February and the individual umbrellas can be found in a few Chinatown stores.
