Big Bang

NEW YORK CITY, USA
BIG BANG

Category: Project for Proposal

Location: 53rd-54th Street Plaza, New York, NY

Medium: Painted Steel

Edition: Unique Edition in this size

Description: “Big Bang” is a project study for two permanent freestanding sculptures created as a site-specific installation for the 53rd–54th Street Plaza in Midtown Manhattan. “Big Bang” is a symbolic imagining of the expansion of energy emanating from a singularity. The energy flowing from a single point evokes the unfolding mysteries of life in all its variations and possibilities. The sculptures’ different colors, intensities, and shapes recall these variations and possibilities in a visually powerful way for the viewer. New York City is a symbolic hub from which different, coexisting cultural, racial, and religious identities radiate joy, creativity, cooperation, and liberty to the world.  At first glance, the installations explore this idea of a city that radiates energy and, figuratively, they reference the organic upward growth of the city’s skyscrapers.
