From Earth to Sky, 2006

Ceramic, glass, and marble mosaic

From Earth to Sky depicts a fantastical view from the station as if one were looking up through a canopy of foliage filled with birds and butterflies beneath a sky that shimmers when light hits the glass mosaic tiles. The imagery fills the overhead circular ceiling, providing the viewer with a joyful visual escape at this busy transit hub. Within the center, the view is reversed and we see a birds-eye map view of the city within an "oculus". The location of the station is pinpointed, surrounded by the vastness of New York City.
