Captured: Bill Brand’s Masstransiscope

Here’s another imperfect attempt to capture Bill Brand’s Masstransiscope.  The truth is that it should be viewed in person, although you may have to make a few loops on the B and Q due to the ever-tumultuous New York subway system.  As with all public art, half of Masstransiscope’s meaning is constructed by its interaction with the public and in my viewing experience it became a testament to New York commuters astounding ability to ignore their surroundings, even when they are utterly charming.  I can only hope that some school in NY is planning to pile their class of 20 5th graders into a subway car to give the piece the squeals of approval it deserves.
