I stumbled upon this John Chamberlain installation at the Seagram Building on the corner of 53rd and Park Ave the other day in the mid-afternoon while the sun was in perfect gleaming mode for these works to truly sparkle in all their aluminum glory. These biomorphic forms are playful yet alien, whimsical but severe. They become activated by the time of the day, the intensity of the sun and the distance you approach them. I was startled with how powerful these works are, they literally demand your attention, though as I said I was there when the sun was most intense and I truly was blinded by the light.
