An 80-foot long water-pool was built on the tracks of an unused portion of a subway station at Canal Street. The conventional subway space was transformed into a surreal underground canal. The lighting effect is achieved by using the transparent and reflective properties of a mesh screen, which envelops the entire installation.
The scene is illuminated by a system of accent lights of various light-spread and intensity, all concealed behind the steel beams of the existing subway infrastructure. Other lighting elements include internally illuminated columns emerging from the water, and floating gondolas with dimmed, candle-like lights.
