Eduardo Navarro’s performances and interventions incorporate meditative practices that offer alternative ways of seeing and experiencing the world. With Instruction from the sky, Navarro turned his attention to the unpredictable movement of clouds. Positioned outside the fair a group of performers, outfitted with circular mirrors that reflect the sky, followed the passing of clouds floating above Randall’s Island. The mirrored discs, gathering information from the sky, reflected the pathways of the clouds which are followed by the performers who travel in sync with the sky.
