Grayson Cox: Half Story Mountain, 2013
Half Story Mountain
Brooklyn Bridge Park is pleased to welcome a minimalist sculpture by New York-based artist Grayson Cox. Supported by Two Trees Management, “Half Story Mountain” is is a 6-foot tall fiberglass sculpture ressembles a Corbusier lounge chair silhouette embedded into a sculpted mountain form. The concept behind the piece is that the sculpture would act as a structure for a single reclining visitor, who would then become part of the view while “relaxing” for other on-lookers. “Half Story Mountain" will remain on view through July 2014 on the lawn at Empire Fulton Ferry.
Michael Clyde Johnson: Untitled Benches, Tables (Cube for Children), 2013
Inspired by ideas relating to mid-twentieth century playground design, this work by Michael Clyde Johnson - an object-based sculptor and designer working out of Brooklyn, New York and Portland, Maine - invites interaction – to touch, to walk under, around and through. Integrated within the social and urban environment in which it is installed, it is an innately social artwork meant for play, both physical and imaginative.
