Tracted Formation
Lee Boroson
Wood, sign paint, steel
2012
Concourse B

This sculpture was originally configured on the floor, and was intended to resemble an endless, rambling architectural folly inspired both by paintings from the Hudson River School and the evolution of neural pathways. Boroson has inverted this cluster of buildings and suspended them within an opening through which light becomes the ground on which they stand. Illusion resides too, in the viewer's upward gaze, where these glossy, glowing towers appear to reside in a fantastical world that is miles away from our own.
