Mika Tajima: Meridian (Gold)

Sculpture artist Mika Tajima was recently commissioned to create Meridian (Gold), a new interactive exhibit that features brightly colored water vapor on the Hunter’s Point South Park waterfront.

Meridian (Gold) is an illuminated plume of water vapor whose color shifts between magenta and pale cyan. The color of the vapor corresponds in real-time to the global sentiment for gold, reflected in the price fluctuation of the commodity. Gold is a peculiar material that derives its value from the social perception of its qualities and collective “moods” toward geopolitical and economic events.

The interactive exhibit will be on view until September 25th.
