Believe Your Eyes—That's an Airplane on the Sidewalk

[Click to make big.]

Visitors to the southeastern corner of Central Park in the last week have been greeted with an unusual piece of art by Paola Pivi called "How I Roll". It features a full-sized six-seater Piper Seneca aircraft suspended by its wingtips and spun around its wing axis at the rate of one revolution per minute. A chain link fence prevents passersby the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be struck by a slow moving aircraft on a city sidewalk, but the rotation and size of the installation allows viewers to examine every facet of the aircraft. "How I Roll" will be on display at the Doris C. Friedman Plaza through August 26th. Attention Jeff Koons: it's your move with the suspended locomotive.
