Love this New York lobby

by light-and-space artist James Turrell.

Walking away from Times Square (who wouldn’t?) this lobby somehow caught my attention.

A passerby saw me looking and pronounced, “that’s wierd.” I thought,” it’s James Turrell made corporate.” And this being New York, it is. A genuine Turrell. And it’s wonderful.

I hear the color alternates from blue to green to red. I think I’d want to walk into and through it every day on the way to work. Would it change my mood?

Or, as CIT is a consumer finance company, and this is their world headquarters; with finance in turmoil, maybe they should program the Turrell to display the current mood of the market, use the lobby like a mood ring. You know,

  • Mood Ring Stressed
  • Mood Ring Fearful
  • Mood Ring Nervous
  • Mood Ring Mixed Emotions
  • Mood Ring Normal
  • Mood Ring Relaxed
  • Mood Ring Calm
  • Mood Ring Cool
  • Mood Ring Lovable
  • Mood Ring Romantic
  • Mood Ring Passionate
  • Mood Ring Very Happy

Looking through the revolving door, I rang the buzzer but the guard you see in the back there wouldn’t open it. I’d love to talk with him. He sits by that light all night.
