Tobias Hutzler photographs “Meridian (Gold),” a dazzling sculpture by artist Mika Tajima installed in Long Island City, New York

With Meridian (Gold), artist Mika Tajima has created a remarkable sculpture that—as The New Yorker points out—looks like a hot tub with light-filled mist erupting from it. “The mist changes color based on the fluctuating value of gold,” the magazines explains. “Computerized lights are fed data, in real time, from global markets.” The New Yorker commissioned Tobias Hutzler, himself no stranger to the mysterious ways of light, to photograph the sculpture, which was produced by Sculpture Center at Hunter’s Point South in Long Island City, New York.
