Event Horizon

Check out these pics of Antony Gormley’s new outdoor exhibition Event Horizon. Gormley’s work consists of 31 lifesize sculptures – 27 of which are placed on rooftops and ledges of buildings surrounding Madison Square Park. Apparently before the work was fully installed, the NYPD got on board to reassure the public that Gormley’s figures were not potential jumpers on the verge of committing suicide.

Gormley’s take: “I never wanted to freak anyone out. If people think of death and suicide, it’s a sad reflection on evolution. This is meant to be an amazing celebration of New York.”

  1. Wow, cool! Typically I don't like public art, but this is pretty cool. Did you actually run into one?
