Tag: Psychogeographies

Sculptor Dustin Yellin sought to capture the energy and movement of dance in his recent installation for the New York City Ballet's Art Series, on view through March 1. The artist humorously describes his translucent pieces as "glass sandwiches": He renders each layer of a figure on a different pane of glass, using a combination of collage and painting, and fuses the various panes into a 3,000 pound glass prism. In the end result, the figure appears to float inside the glass with all its various layers revealed. The pieces are part of Yellin's larger series, "Psychogeographies," in which he maps out the ways memories are stored in the body.
