Canal St. Cross-Section

What’s this?

Sculptor Alan Wolfson created this “core sample of a city street. As though you took a street, dug it up, and lifted it straight off the earth.” Roughly a two foot cube, this model reproduces in beautiful miniaturized detail everything from the air conditioning unit installed above the entrance to a pizza parlor to the interior of the pizza parlor itself to the subway station directly beneath it.

This sculpture will be on display in June in New York at the Museum of Arts and Design’s exhibition “Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities” but you can see close-ups at the sculptor’s Web site.
