Collaboration with Artist Charles Gaines “Tilted Tower,” Highline, New York, New York
The artist Charles Gaines asked us to collaborate with him to produce an artwork for the Highline in New York City. “Tilted Tower” is a 45-foot aluminum obelisk with a column of chambers, tilted at an angle of 82 degrees leaning towards the United States Postal Service Morgan General Mail Facility building. Inside each chamber is a replica of a mailbox with a plaque dedicated to a discontinued New York-area newspaper. The work pays homage to the United States Postal Service and print journalism, two institutions that have historically bridged the space between democracy and capitalism.
