Leo Villareal Volume
Inspired by the lights of nearby Times Square, Art Nerd New York favorite Leo Villareal was commissioned to create a gorgeous glowing installation for the lobby of the Durst Corporation Building on Sixth Avenue- which you are welcome to look at from the outside, but don’t even try to enter without a guard rushing toward you. Visible from the street, the twinkling piece is entitled “Volume (Durst)” and is made up of 86,400 hanging LED lights and 900 razor thin mirror pieces that make up the largest installation that the artist has created thus far. Like an expansive chandelier, the piece stretches out to 90 x 12 x 6 feet, and bleeps and blops in continuous, unending patterns of glowing organic shapes. The computer program, designed by Villareal, is set to never repeat itself, creating a lifetime of random waves of light.
What an awesome example of two of our faves- FREE lobby art and Leo Villareal!
