Alexander Brodsky

This is an image from his Canal Street Subway Project in NYC that I came upon while flipping through PLOP: Recent Projects of the Public Art Fund.

From the press release:

Russian artist Alexander Brodsky transformed the Canal Street Subway Station into a Venetian canal, incorporating a shadow puppet style to create the illusion. The gondolas were made out of tin; wooden cutouts were placed in a shallow tank of water gently rocked by waves. Lights and faint sounds of music and lapping water were used to enhance the experience. The rear wall of the installation was filled with a perspective drawing of an ancient Venetian street, creating a sense of depth.
