188th Street Tunnel
This exhibit defines either end of the 188th Street Tunnel. A pair of hovering ‘wing fern' plinths are backlit in fiery amber. Each sculptural wing is fabricated as a real, aerodynamic plane wing with structural undergirding, brushed aluminum skin and extensive riveting. LED backlighting behind the lasercut fern image imbues each piece with an otherworldly dynamism. The sum effect should be a subject for conversation on the flight home.
