Jenny Holzer Loves New York
The gorgeous glass lobby of 7 World Trade Center may have been designed by James Carpenter, but the real draw is the giant LED installation by Jenny Holzer. The collaboration is an oversized piece- stretching 65 feet by 14 feet high behind the front desk. Across the screen, Holzer chose poems and prose that illustrate New York’s amazing history (what a perfect art nerd piece!). Lines by Elizabeth Bishop, Allen Ginsberg, Langston Hughes and Walt Whitman drift across the giant screen in five feet letters, taking a full 36 hours to watch/read in its entirety.
The glowing piece is viewable from the adjacent park, making the installation accessible to the public, even though it is stationed inside a corporate lobby.
