Interactive installation by Osman Khan and Kim Beck. A typical shopping mall automatic door is placed in an open space. In the words of the artists the installation ” is a useless barrier as the doors open automatically when someone walks up or even just around them. It provides instead a moment of pause as one passes over the threshold to view the city skyline across the East River.”
