Starry Night installation by Photographer Lee Eunyeol
Starry night expresses private spaces given by night and various emotions that are not able to be defined and described in the space. I’ve chosen analogue type for the expression which attempts to install electric bulbs in an objet to be expressed using back space of night by taking advantage of huge studio - LE (via Colossal)
The lives of animals revolve around their living space, the rainforest. And since animals are not able to speak for themselves, the destruction of their habitat leaves them suffering in silence.
“Sound Wave” sculpture by Jean Shin - made out of melted records on wooden armature.
Records were melted and sculpted to form a cascading wave, dotted with bursts of colorful labels. The resulting structure speaks to the inevitable waves of technology that render each successive generation of recordable media obsolete.

Elizabeth Murray: Blooming, 1996
Riders at this station are treated to the joyous burst of color and shapes that is Blooming. The mosaics defy the corners of the space as the imagery wraps around corners, down steps, and through doorways.
Elizabeth Murray’s Blooming takes its title from Bloomingdale’s, located above the station upstairs. The artist views the subway as a “dreamy underworld” and also a place to wake up, and her pink trees, red shoes and yellow mugs with steaming coffee succeed in gaining the viewers’ attention. Murray says, “I added the stepping shoes and steaming coffee cups, part of the ritual of every morning or evening subway trip.” The images are intended to “stimulate thoughts about passage, as does the poetry” that is incorporated into the mural, lines from William Butler Yeats’s, “In dreams begin responsibility,” and Gwendolyn Brooks’s “Conduct your blooming in the noise and whip of the whirlwind.”
The bottom two photos are of the space before the mosaic was installed. What a difference!
