Sky Mirror Sucks

skymirror1.JPGBefore the Sky Mirror was even installed at Rockefeller Center, I wrote a post (click here) guessing that it would not compare well to The Bean in Chicago’s Millennium Park even though it’s by the same sculptor, Anish Kapoor. Alas, how right I turned out to be! It’s not at all interactive like the The Bean is; it’s not nearly as photographable, and you can’t really get near it. It’s a bigger disappointment than I imagined. Granted, it was a cloudy day, but really it’s just a big shiny satellite dish. The only good thing about the Sky Mirror is that it’s a temporary installation. Otherwise, it would be quite embarrassing to have such an inferior work of public art compared to Chicago.

  1. why does the art in NYC have to be ‘better’ than Chicago’s art? I think you should appreciate it for what it is rather than for what it’s not.
