Artwork is entitled Passage and was installed in 2004. The
artist is Tom Patti. According to the MTA web site "...Passage
was designed in tandem with the architects, FX + FOWLE, as an
integral part of the station. It features trapezoidal-shaped
windows fitted into the steel so they can be opened and allow
air into the platform. The laminated, impact-resistant security
glass is layered with a plasma composite material to break up
light into the colors of the spectrum. The artist has said that
Passage is influenced by the markets, flowers, and colors
on the nearby streets. Tom Patti pioneered the integration of
industrial and architectural glass into art. "The ability of
glass to occupy several physical states - transparent, opaque,
dense, solid, weightless - all altering our spatial boundary -
challenges me," he says.
All of Passage's components were handmade in his studio.
This act of craftsmanship is critical, says Patti, to ensure the
integrity of all elements."
