"There’s something that happens when you swing. I’m sure there’s a neurological explanation for the sense of pleasure that you feel—and I think people are giving over to that."

—Ann Hamilton, from the Art21 Exclusive film, Ann Hamilton: "the event of a thread"

In a new video from Art21's Exclusive series, Ann Hamilton discusses her installation the event of a thread (2012), which occupied the cavernous drill hall at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.
