From a distance at dusk residents and visitors can spy a subtle twinkle in the distance, within reach of the river near by. Approaching closer they would see a line of light continuously tracing over and over itself to create a levitating infinity. As you pass underneath, when the perspective view is lost, the sculpture transformers to a portal to the sky. The form of infinity references the Hudson River and the project is partly inspired by the Hudson River, which flows both ways. The installation Infinity, on view from October 4 – October 29, 2014. aims to highlight the connection between the Saw Mill and Hudson Rivers. Artists Natalia Lesniak, Anastasia Ugorskaya, and Jenny Chan collaborated to create reflections of nature in the city as well as explore redefining public spaces.
