from Train Rising Out of the Sea

by John Ashbery

Poet Bio

John Ashbery was recognized as one of the greatest 20th-century American poets. He won nearly every major American award for poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the Yale Younger Poets Prize, the Bollingen Prize, the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the Griffin International Award, and a MacArthur “Genius” Grant.

Artist Bio

Artwork at Prospect Av station is by Monika Bravo, a Colombian-born, Brooklyn-based artist who has created site-specific, public installations in the U.S. and internationally. Bravo works with animation, sound, photography, and digital technology to explore time, space, and memory. Arising from her ongoing research of color and rhythm, the bold abstract patterns seen in Duration seem to pulsate with vibrant waves of energy. Data and material are woven together to create a new code that connects technology, process, and illusion. The composition layers forms drawn from Modern Abstraction, pixelated satellite images presented in mosaic tesserae, and historical maps and photos of the nearby waterfront.
