What happens when you hang five sculptures from a branch in a park?

Five sculptures are hung from a branch in New York City? How long will they stay? Will they survive the weather?

Many visits are made over days, then weeks, then months. The sculptures survive, hidden in plain sight. They are especially difficult to see amongst the abundant spring foliage. In the stark winter their color echoes that of the bark on the trees.  

Over a year later, the thread finally wears through. Three of the sculptures are found amongst the leaves at the base of the tree. Two of the sculptures are never recovered.
