Peepholes at Sloan-Kettering

When visitors enter the lobby of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center on the Upper East Side, they are greeted with a giant steel art installation. Along the wall are dozens of circular and oval cut outs, arranged in a perfect grid. Up close, the cut outs reveal a lime green shape from within. Each cut out is actually a peep hole, that points to various spots of the lobby. But the view from these peepholes are surprising- and don’t cut straight across On the reverse of the steel curtain, the cut outs seem arranged at random, the grid broken into a conglomerate of organic shapes, and direct the viewer’s gaze every which way. The piece was fabricated by Veyko.
