New York, NY

Under-Hangs was a series of site-specific installations suspended from the street surface into the Amtrak / Freedom Tunnel, beneath Riverside Park.

Each site-specific installation consisted of six miles of rusted cord suspended into the underground; designed to accentuate the dynamic potential at the threshold between surface and sub-surface — and to encourage general interest in the physical context and historical legacy of the Freedom Tunnel.

“…it draws visual and natural connections at the threshold between the surface and the subsurface and works to encourage general curiosity regarding the history of the tunnels construction, occupation, and accessibility”

Under-Hangs is part of an ongoing series of clandestine installations to highlight the urban subterranean — Summer 2017.
