I'm not sure who this is, I'll look it up (or please enlighten me), but this is an artist's installation along the newly opened High Line in NYC. There are other installations along the way, but this one really grabbed be. Entering, it completely changes your sense of place, kind of like in the old days when you went to the movies and stepped through a black curtain to find a darkened room lit by a bright screen up front and shadows flickering along the walls. (That's a sensation that's lost to a lot of us). The blue makes it feel cool and dark, even though it might be warm outside of the tunnel - yet it glows with energy - an interesting juxtaposition. And it has a pattern to it that's the same all the way across, but gets broken up due to the beams that it has to cross.
