‘Float’ art exhibit on the Convention Center lawn should be your virtual office

  • This probably beats your office view.

Your keyboard keys will never sound as sweet, the view couldn’t get much better and even the guy on a Bluetooth headset won’t be nearly as annoying. That’s because you’ll be rocking in a hammock at “Float,” artist Jarrett Mellenbruch’s newly installed exhibition on the lawn in front of the Kansas City Convention Center’s Grand Ballroom at 16th Street between Central and Wyandotte.

This post was composed on the lawn and the hammock. (If you haven’t been on one in a while, they’re not as easy to get into as you might remember. Although, to be fair, that’s half the entertainment value of the exhibition.) I had every expectation of typing on the hammock – the hammock had different expectations. While the convention center’s public Internet connection is spotty, the relative quiet on a sunny morning makes waiting for a Web page to load pleasant.
