Rob Ley’s Silver Lining features interconnected metal sculptures

 

Silver Lining, a public artwork by Rob Ley, spans three lobby walls with its immersive design. The installation features interconnected sculptures created through the origami-like folding of metal forms. Thousands of precisely angled mirrored surfaces capture and reflect the diverse colors, people, and movements within the lobby and the adjacent Met Park. This arrangement produces a kaleidoscopic effect, transforming the surroundings into vibrant, abstract patterns.

kaleidoscopic reflections create a dynamic atmosphere

 

The artwork, designed by California-based Rob Ley, not only reflects the beauty and complexity of its environment but also creates a dynamic space for social interaction. The mirrored surfaces engage viewers, encouraging them to connect and interact in unexpected ways, enhancing the communal experience of the lobby area.
