'Weaving the Courtyard' is an ethereal art installation at this year's MoMA PS1 exhibition in the New York City borough of Queens. The installation features hundreds of colorful cables strung over top of the PS1 courtyard, creating intricate, coalescing patterns that shift as attendees move through the space.

Interpretations of Weaving the Courtyard span broad topics. For one, the multicolored ropes symbolize the varied peoples who make up the fabric of the neighborhood on the outer edge of New York City. The ropes are also completely unaltered in order to be used in the exhibition, allowing them to be donated to a weaving society in Brooklyn where they will be repurposed as rugs and given to various public institutions. This donation cycle is a statement about sustainability.
