New Video: Watch the 96th Street Subway Station Come to Life

In a new film from the Art21 digital series Exclusive, Sarah Sze shares the process and inspiration behind her immersive artwork for the Second Avenue Subway in New York City. Inspired by the Italian Futurists and Russian Constructivists, Sze designed the work around “how we move through space.”
