A new view can now be seen from The High Line! Too Much Future is a new work by Christine Sun Kim and the seventh work to be presented as part of our ongoing public art series on the facade of the building across the street from the Museum. In this work Kim pairs text with a rendering of the sign for the word “future” in American Sign Language, typically illustrated as a thin line. Here the artist reimagines that line as a thick black mass in order to indicate multiple meanings that can be projected onto the word. For Kim, the same unpredictability that can make the future a source of anxiety can also create a sense of optimism.
