Jamie Isenstein’s Rug Harp

“During Art Basel 2011 Brooklyn-based artist Jamie Isenstein was performing ‘Rug Woogie IV’ at the booth of Galerie Meyer Riegger. Jamie Isenstein was seated at a classical harp. But the instrument didn’t produce any sound, on the contrary: Jamie Isenstein wasn’t plucking the strings, but weaving wool through them, covering their sound. The result of this process is a sculpture, a rug, woven into the harp by the artist.”
