Great article in today’s New York Times on Mike and Doug Starn’s installation in the South Ferry subway station.
Plenty of interesting details on the piece, its method and meaning, but I found this part most inspiring:
When the Starns were first approached by the Arts for Transit program in fall 2004, they were busy with other projects and not particularly interested in participating, Doug said. But the brothers came up with a proposal at the last minute and won the commission the next year.
It’s reassuring to realize that even the greats are sometimes just tossing it together at the last minute.
