fata morgana in new york

we came across this amazing installation that is now on in new york’s madison square park and thought we share it with you!

‘fata morgana’ by american artist teresita fernández is a 150 meters-long sculpture comprising of mirror-polished discs that create kaleidoscopic canopies above the park’s central pathways and recreational areas. ‘by hovering over the park in a horizontal band, fata morgana becomes a ghost-like, sculptural, luminous mirage that both distorts the landscape and radiates golden light’ explains the artist.
