In an age when many cities are beginning to look similar, with mass retail chains dotting the landscape of what used to be mom and pop stores, one of the last vanguards of originality in a public space seems to be the large scale art installation.

Though there’s no shortage of awe inspiring aesthetic creations in New York, the fact that it’s constantly evolving and open to new ideas is one of the things that truly sets this metropolis apart, and makes it such a great place to showcase these works. With technology and innovation coming to play a larger part in the art world, it also makes sense that one of the more intriguing public exhibits to debut in NYC this season would incorporate many new media elements.
