Spirit of the City is a site-specific installation by London-based United Visual Artists that explores the physical and emotional response that individuals experience when navigating urban environments. Visitors are surrounded by 9-foot high gold mirrored rotating cubes which mimic Manhattan’s (and now Greenpoint’s) high rise skyscrapers. During the day, the reflective cubes cast beams of light onto the ground and walls in an ever changing confetti of light, while at night, the cubes are illuminated.
