Jongil Ma’s work reflected on Randall’s Island’s geographic role, by interpreting the Island as a physical and metaphorical bridge, exploring the interconnectivity of different spaces. The installation responded to and recreated the tension, balance and beauty of major architectural structures such as the Hell Gate and RFK Bridges, with major flow lines representing the figures of surrounding roads and railways. The movement was suspended and supported by four columns. Like the roadways and structures themselves, the piece embraced the dynamic, athletic energy of the park, the city and its people through its enormous circles and curved lines. While the installation focused on the Island’s physical and functional points, it also expressed the complexity of our life stories, and attracted the viewer through its active, moving lines, drawing or painting in the open, outdoor space.

This is actual installation day 2!
the columns are standing with the base, raining hard but nothing matters at all!
