New Lots Avenue
16 Windows, 2007
Fused glass in platform windscreens
Using windows as a motif, artist Eugenie Tung looks into the daily lives of New Yorkers engaged in their daily routines before (on the Manhattan-bound platform) and after (on the Brooklyn-bound platform) their daily commutes: watering plants, watching TV, eating breakfast, cooking dinner. The artist believes that beauty can be found within these often overlooked ordinary activities; although there may be differences in how they are carried out, the rituals of daily life cross invisible boundaries and unite us all through the concept of home.
