Kinetic Light Sculpture
From a distance at dusk, visitors will spy a subtle twinkle vibrating in the air at Van der Donck Park. With a magnificent 1911 Beaux-Arts style railroad station built for the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad providing backdrop, it’s within the reach of the Hudson River flowing nearby. Approaching closer, a line of blue light continuously traces itself over and over creating a levitating Infinity sculpture. Passing underneath, the perspective view is lost and the artwork transforms into an exuberant sky portal. The project, Infinity is inspired by the Hudson River that flows endlessly in both directions.
On view from October 6th through October 19th, 2014, Infinity aims to highlight the connection between the Saw Mill and Hudson Rivers. Artists Natalia Lesniak, Anastasia Ugorskaya, and Jenny Chan collaborated to create this reflection of nature and explore redefining public spaces within the city.
On view October 6 – 19, 2014
5:00 pm – 8:00pm, daily
