Another Food Affair and Winter Lights

Had korean food the other night in the city..


Side dishes

Seafood Tofu Soup, I wish you could see the clams, shrimp, and mussels but it was drowned beneath the broth..

Scallion pancake and rice on the side.

Later on, I wandered around Chelsea and Flatiron and came across Madison Square Park..
This is an installation piece by Jim Campbell, it's absolutely stunning!

The piece is called Scattered Lights.


It felt absolutely magical walking through the piece.

Sorry for the poor picture quality but here's a moving image, of the side. You can actually see shadows of people walking within the lights! So cool !!

Here's more info about Jim Campbell and the installation pieces he has up at Madison Square Park,

  7. Wow! This has got to be my favorite post because 2 of my favorite things are on here. Firstly is my crazy obsession with korean food!! I love kimchi chigae and seafood soon tofu! Also, what a coincidence! I also posted one of my favorite artist who also creates installations. This one looks magical! I want to be there!! Hopefully I will be able to visit this beautiful city this summer :) Thanks for sharing!

  9. The suspended lights are so beautiful. I love 3D art like that. There's another sculptural artist I like; her name is Claire Morgan.

    This is my favorite piece of hers

  12. The installation took my breath away, and just in pictures. I can't imagine what it would be like to see it in persono. I think it's amazing, and that's another reason why I'm madly in love with NYC.
    I like so much your blog
