The completion of the work to rehabilitate seven stations along the D Line in Brooklyn was marked on August 2, 2012, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by MTA leaders and local elected officials.
We installed great new artwork at each of the seven stations. Here are details for the artwork shown in this image and its location.
Bay 50th Street -
Artist: Dan Zeller
Title: Internal Connectivity
Medium: Laminated glass
Location: Platform windscreens
Fabricator: Depp Glass, Inc.
This station is adjacent to John Dewey High School and is one station away from Coney Island, which provide a natural setting for Zeller’s abstract drawings to address the connectiveness of lives in an urban environment. Zeller studied satellite imagery and biological systems along the West End Line and interpreted them into abstract patterns. These colorful images provide an organic quality that is in concert with the green space next to the station and the nearby bay area. In the medium of glass, the work will be aided by the strong light available to this particular station, and since there is no specific imagery to interpret, it can be visible and enjoyed by those on the platform or two blocks away.
