I haven’t done any research, but someone has probably figured out the amount of people that, at any given time, are a part of the subterranean world of New York City. We are all going somewhere. We are all on the journey towards our destination and destiny, going this way, or, that way.
Just taking a walk with my fellow digital citizens.
Is that what technology is supposed to do? Huh… I must be using it wrong…
Sometimes you just don’t know where to look when you are inside the great Oculus, however, everywhere you look is kinda breathtaking.
The Oculus gives you an incredible sense of awe and vertical space and, the Oculus also gives you lines. Lots of lines. This is my favorite image from the series of photographs that I took on my recent visit to NY.
I wonder if this structure now qualifies as the “location where the most selfies are taken.” Half the fun of being here was watching all the photography going on!
The Oculus leaves many impressions. I can’t get away from the idea of the skeletal remains of a giant, ancient creature that was uncovered in Lower Manhattan. I think I understand a little bit about how Pinocchio might have felt.
The impact of space is interesting to me. The way boundaries, limitations, and, definition is brought to space results in an emotional, almost transcendent experience. Apparently, The Oculus has received mixed reviews, but there is no denying that it does have impact.
The World Trade Center Transportation Hub seems to a bit out of place amidst the shiny, modern buildings in Lower Manhattan. It sort of looks like a gigantic stegosaurus skeleton that was unearthed during construction. Here is an image taken inside the hub.
