The paper is piling up.
A few times a minute, translucent white paper descends from the ceiling of a gallery at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and drifts into heaps on the floor. It's been falling for months and will continue to fall every day through Feb. 18.
The piles of paper that museumgoers can wade through, sit in and toss around are part of the exhibit "at hand," by artist Ann Hamilton, who creates immersive experiences.
"Can you hear the silence of the paper falling through the air?" she asks in an artist statement.
