Sound of Silence

August 5th, 2014 by Raheleh Zomorodinia
The Sound of Silence is a series of works by “Open 5 baz”, which first created as an installation in the first festival of Fajr Afarinan in Saba Complex-Tehran. In continuance of this series, Open 5 baz used the natural elements such as; the stones and water, to address their political circumstances in Iran. By throwing stones in the water they imply their opposition. This work is addressing all political prisoners who have been arrested because of their attitudes.

In 1987, the Association for Public Art commissioned Fingerspan, a weathering steel pedestrian bridge located on a nature trail along the Wissahickon Creek. Pinto is currently working with the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation on Land Buoy, a beacon and observation tower for Pier 53, a new waterfront park along the Delaware River.

Museum Without Walls created a video on Jody Pinto’s Fingerspan.
