Clark Street Passage, 1987

Terrazzo floor in lower passageway

Clark Street Passage is an intriguing artwork within the floor of the station that uses three geometric shapes - circles, squares, and triangles against a black background. When transit customers walk down the passage they are exposed to all the configurations that can be made from these basic elements, which create a flowing sense of movement. The study of constantly shifting geometric patterns is derived from artist Ray Ring's earlier work which was heavily influenced by early geometric abstract art from the early 20th century.
