PAULA HAYES: GAZING GLOBES

February 19th-April 19th, 2015

At Madison Square Park

!cid_image003_jpg@01D0408FMad. Sq. Art, the free, contemporary art program of the Madison Square Park Conservancy, proudly presents its captivating winter exhibition by New York-based visual artist and landscape designer Paula Hayes from February 19 to April 19, 2015 at Madison Square Park, 23rd-26th Streets between Madison and Fifth Avenues.

Gazing Globes, Paula Hayes’s first outdoor sculpture exhibition in New York City, will be on view on the West Gravel area of the park.   The work features eighteen transparent spheres that hold the detritus of contemporary culture, including used batteries, computer parts, and other remnants of technology sprinkled with fairy dust made of pulverized CDs.

Formed into beauteous objects, Hayes’ crystal balls positioned on elegant fiberglass pedestals summon the present and predict the future. Each see-through globe lit from within will house used batteries, tossed-out computer parts, castoff electronic transistor parts, vacuum tubes, shredded rubber tires and recycled plastic flotsam. To these mixed remnants of technology and culture the artist adds crystals and minerals. A shimmering fairy dust made from pulverized CDs will coat the bottom and sides of each sculpture’s interior. Hayes, who typically works with varieties of plant materials, is determined that everyday castoffs are indicative of a society’s behavior and value system and symptomatic of the current landscape.
