Notice what appeared to be rooftops mysteriously disappearing into the ground on 46th Street and Eighth Avenue yesterday? What you saw was a 5,000-square-foot sculpture called "Desert Rooftops." What it's meant to do: "The piece examines issues of the natural and built landscape by comparing the monoculture that arises from unchecked suburban and urban sprawl with that of an over-cultivated landscape?.As housing communities devour more and more land and resources each year the outcome is equivalent to the very process of desertification." The sculpture will be up through February 5th. [Gothamist]
