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.
