The Brooklyn-based artist has been spending the last several months constructing a huge, three-part "landscape" made of over a million feet of painted, hand-knotted rope.  The work is called "Red, Yellow and Blue" and Genger explains: "The tradition of knitting carries the sharing of stories and the installation draws on that idea. The repurposed rope brings with it the stories of different locations and by knotting it, a space is created for the words and thoughts of viewers in New York City to complete the work, creating a silent dialogue that waves along."  It will be up until September.
