Mirages of the Walls

Honor Award

This project by a student at Pratt Institute converted computer pixels into black, white and gray tiles. The concept is illustrated with a design for the walls at 42nd Street Subway Station, featuring the faces and feet taken from a vintage photo of the Ziegfeld Follies dancers, who became synonymous with the area. To convey the scale of his design — the entire length of the 42nd Street Station — the designer used a mathematical trick, a spiral presentation that fools the viewer in to seeing the drawings in perspective and in context.
