Metrobench by Stephen Shaheen: Movement Transformed into the Rest

Unveiled last month at Sloan Fine Art Gallery, the thought-provoking Metrobench was designed by Stephen Shaheen. It is both an art sculpture and unique furniture piece which looks extremely modern and creative. Using 5,000 NYC Metro cards, this smart design transforms a symbol of movement and speed into an object of rest and reflection. Each card has its own little untold story. The snips of millions of New Yorkers, with their separate lives are combined together into a fluid tapestry. The sculpture was assembled completely by hand, card by card. Very impressive and unusual!
