The “CURRENT” sculpture, installed at the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge Path, is one of several permanent artworks commissioned by the New York State Thruway Authority that opened up to the public in mid-June.
Composed of 12 illuminated steel arches, CURRENT celebrates transformation. Referencing currents– of rivers, of light, of time– this dynamic sculpture is under continual activation. By day, its shadows and colored light refractions are ever-changing. In the evening, it creates a shared spatial experience through light animations that respond to movements of passers-by.
