a river reflected in glass

New York 046

A window panel of the art installation by Spencer Finch at the High Line in NYC. Each pane of glass contains a photograph that captures the changing reflective and translucent colours of the water of the Hudson River at different times of the day,

Char: I am so glad I took photos of it, as I understand it was a temporary installment and is no longer there

Nora: there were 700 panes in all - it really did look quite impressive

Eileen: who would have thought a muddy river could be so colourful?

Travail très intéressant ! Joli résultat aussi ! (Pardon pour mon anglais déficient ...)

OH MY GOSH! I would love to sit and watch it...or return several times during the day to see the changes. What a brilliant project.

This is a very beautiful glass installation, and yes, sorry to hear it was a temporary one. I wonder if Spencer knows my friend Sarah Hall (http://sarahhallstudio.com), another glass artist who does brilliant work.

Very cool and very beautiful!

Ruth said...

It's a very cool concept, photographs that just look like solid colors.

I didn't see this in May, but it might have been there then?

It makes a beautiful image.
