For the past several months, visitors of all ages to the High Line have been busily constructing and reconstructing an imaginary cityscape. Presented by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, the collectivity project, an installation of two tons of white LEGO® bricks, is part of the High Line’s open-air group exhibition, Panorama. Here are a few images that we captured:
