The El, 2007
Faceted glass in platform windscreens
The elevated train stations located in the Bronx inspired The El. Artist Daniel Hauben a Bronx resident, has always been drawn to and inspired by the sense of scale provided by these immense structures when contrasted with their neighborhood settings, and his scenes, translated into faceted glass mosaics, depict the unique character of the Bronx through composition, pattern, light, darkness, and movement through the canvas. Hauben commented, that as one "looks down a long street topped by the receding concentric pattern of the elevated structure, one has a feeling of both great depth and the sprawling vastness of the city."
