Waterworks: Waterfall$ of NY
2008
Pen, acrylic on a New York Subway map
14.5 x 9 inches
$900
This piece was created with a NYC subway map and takes a stab at our current economic situation. Also, it makes reference to Olafur Eliasson’s temporary sculpture “Waterfalls of New York” on the East River, which I saw from a tour boat just as the financial crisis was getting ready to hit in September 2008. I created a T-shirt based on this drawing -- see publication.
