Permanent Residents and Visitors, 2010

Faceted glass in platform windscreens

Permanent Residents and Visitors is an aerial view of some of the most common birds living in or visiting New York City. The observation of birds and their richness of color, flight, and song inspired the artist, and numerous species of birds cross the sky - rendered in clear and etched glass - including gulls, ducks, blue jays, eagles, cardinals, geese, crows, and more. Animals coexist with humans, sharing our space and the urban experience. The combination of their graceful behavior, colors, and songs remind us of the natural environment that surrounds us, and that these graceful creatures are an important part of our lives.
