Unreal City, Madison Square Park, NYC

40.742401,-73.988512
The sculpture in the center of Madison Square Park in New York City is Jim Campbell’s Scattered Light a light-based, moving-image piece. This ever present illusion of figures in the sculpture typically reflect our experience, but tonight, they are the only ghost-like inhabitants of the Oval Lawn, save the one curious passerby in the foreground, seemingly transfixed, as I am composing this image. Even the buildings, like apparitions, fade away in an unreal city as trees stretch across the sky to provide a quiet, intimate repose.
