New Art Lights Up Meatpacking District Development Site
MANHATTAN — A new piece of public art is brightening a construction site in the Meatpacking District.
Blue and purple trapezoids now stretch more than 100 feet across the façade of 837 Washington St., a future retail and office building near the High Line and across from the Standard Hotel.
Called "Crystalline Time," the piece, completed last week by light projection artist Chris Jordan and the marketing agency DBOX, is illuminated come nightfall.
“What you see as a pattern during the day begins to breathe and come to life in the evening hours," Jordan said in a statement.
The 15-foot-tall artwork was selected by developers Thor Equities and Taconic Investment Partners.
