Nice Flow (Public Art at the Highline)

009 010 011 012 013

On permanent display at the Highline in New York. It is supposed to evoke the Hudson River. It has nice flow to it. It’s in an underpass under a building. During the summer, food stands and tables are set up along this part of the passage where the piece is installed. There was a cellist there the other day.  It all came neatly together because this particular  artwork is itself  musical, deep and rhythmic. You’d think that that ambient light would color the panels, but, in fact they always look this way; because of the color film interlayers (?).
