Inspired by the sense of possibility around the Roscoe Station, Sam Erenberg sought to incorporate a feeling of forward motion into his artwork.
To convey this Erenberg photographed the area from a moving vehicle at night. His images capture bright streams of light created by traffic lights, brake lights and illuminated signs on major local thoroughfares: Roscoe Boulevard, Canoga Avenue and Topanga Canyon Boulevard.
These images are currently being translated into two 27-foot long elliptical mosaic artworks, which will be embedded into the concrete station platforms. More photos are after the jump and here’s a link to more information about Sam.
