About the Artists

"A fundamental sense of wonder at the perception of time and the natural world motivates us to construct contemplative work aimed at magnifying the sense of place and present."
--- Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel

The installation includes many eyes of Stuyvesant students. In addition, Jones and Ginzel have worked at CS 102 in The Bronx and are the creators of Metronome, the huge "artwall" at Union Square with steam and a 24-hour clock. In New York City, Jones and Ginzel have created many temporary public art installations at sites such as the "Old" 42nd Street, The Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage P.S. 1 Museum, the New Museum and in City Hall Park (a few blocks away from Stuyvesant).

       

Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel have worked collaboratively since 1985 on many commissioned private and public projects as well as museum and gallery exhibitions internationally. Their recent major works encompass a variety of locations such as the Kansas City and Tampa airports, the Tiber River in Rome, and public buildings in Chicago, Columbus and St. Louis.
