Public Art: Leo Villareal "Hive" for MTA Arts for Transit

By - Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

The newest MTA Arts for Transit piece was unveiled this past weekend at the staircase that will connect Bleecker Street subway riders between the uptown 6 train and the B, D and F lines. The piece titled “Hive” is by light sculpture artist Leo Villareal, who incorporates computer programs into his displays. This work integrates John Conway’s mathematical formula “Life,” effecting the lights’ color, intensity, and movement depending on the commuter traffic of the station. This is the first digital artwork commissioned by MTA Arts for Transit, breaking from their tradition of mosaic, terra cotta, bronze, glass and mixed-media sculpture commissions. Visit NY1 for video of “Hive” and commuter reactions. Source: DNAinfo
