The public spaces of 142 West 57th Street have been re-positioned and re-designed for a 21st Century persona. Art Assets will research and install an Electronic Art exhibition program in the lobby to create a dynamic experience for tenants and visitors, transforming the relationships between art, culture and the public.
New York artist Ray Rapp is best known for his sculptures created from found television sets combined with video and “wall drawings” made from extension cords, electronic boxes, RGB cables, transformer wires, LCD monitors and DVD players. He takes apart the television sets and rearranges the inside wiring and transistors into sculptural yet still functional forms.
Rapp has exhibited his work in museums and galleries internationally since 1985.
