Artist Sarah Sze's new massive sculpture at La Guardia excites!
Artist Sarah Sze explores the myriad conceptions of time and space through a tremendous, new spherical sculpture. Titled “Shorter than the Day” —a reference to Emily Dickinson’s poem “Because I could not stop for Death,” which considers the comfort found in life’s finality—Sze’s piece weighs five tons and was unveiled recently at LaGuardia Airport. It is suspended above an atrium in Terminal B. Hundreds of photos of the New York skyline are featured.
