There’s a giant frameless box placed right in front of the fountain at Lincoln Centre. Irish artist John Gerrard is the creator of “Solar Reserve” a large-scale LED installation. Created by photographing a solar power plant in the Nevada desert over the period of an entire year, the artist speeds up the footage of more than 10,000 photographs to show an entire year of solar energy being generated in just a few short moments.
Depending on the time of day you visit, you may see the Nevada sunrise, sunset or afternoon. As you can imagine, it looks monumental in the evening, and anybody attending one of the many upcoming cultural events at Lincoln Centre will delight in the piece. On show until December, this is a wonderful example of public art in New York.
