David Byrne’s Tight Spot

David Byrne's Tight Spot

Lately, if you’ve taken a walk on the High Line or walked around Chelsea, you might have heard a strange rumbling coming from the ground. (And no, it’s not another earthquake.)

Following the bizarre noises leads you to the Pace Gallery’s new space on W. 25th Street, directly below the High Line. The dirt lot is now home to a 48-foot wide inflatable globe, installed by David Byrne, crammed underneath the High Line’s trestle.

Byrne’s installation gives a new meaning to the saying “let the world pass you by.” Now—or at least until October 1—you can pass the world by on 25th Street.
