Description

"In 2013 I was fortunate to be commission by the architect Steven Lee to build a new piece for an apartment he was building on Central Park West. For this work I was inspired by a winter evening spent entranced by Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 5 in B flat major at Carnegie Hall. Cradled by the rhythm I let myself wander through the architecture of the music and feast on the ornament of the hall. For a moment I understood the intangible. I recognized the structure of the linear pattern breaking through to become something sublime. For Schubert’s No. 5, I created a motif abstracted from the composer’s own written notation and carved them into white concrete. The motif penetrates the structural fabric of the concrete embedding itself in the space. A translation of the emotive language of music, encapsulated in the frozen time of an architectural material." - Crystal Gregory
