The Public Art Fund, the same non-profit that is responsible for artworks currently around New York City including Jeff Koons’ Split-Rocker at Rockefeller Center and Dahn Vo’s We The People, unveiled its newest project late last month, Sam Falls’ Light Over Time.
The installation, located at the MetroTech Center in Brooklyn, merges functionality and artistic value with five untitled works. Light Over Time invites viewers to interact: playing a massive wind chime, or sitting atop a bench that changes color according to differing heat temperatures, like a mood ring for your entire body.
Falls explores the intersection of time and light via various mediums, and with this particular project, it is no different. The Los Angeles native attempts looks to invite and involve the viewer to interact with his work, blurring the asymptotic line between what is art and what is functional.
The installation will be on display until May 29, 2015.
