"How I Roll" - Rotating Plane Sculpture By Paola Pivi At Doris Freedman Plaza In Central Park

The Public Art Fund is presenting a new sculpture by Paola Pivi called "How I Roll" at the Doris C. Freedman Plaza in Central Park. The piece is a modified six-seat Piper Seneca plane that rotates through 360 degrees while held aloft on its wing tips above the sidewalk. The sculpture is part of a series featuring large machines that have been taken out of their usual context including an upside-down helicopter and an overturned tractor-trailer. The public art installation creates the striking and surreal experience of a familiar object perched in an unexpected location doing a very unfamiliar motion. It looks more dramatic in the presence of cars and horse-drawn carriages on the street right below it, as captured in the photo above. The exhibition continues through August 26, 2012.
