Lenticular Histories is an immersive and interactive monument that engages Prospect Park visitors in a system of reflections, refractions, and nonlinear photo-history that celebrates acts of “Leisure and activism”. Viewers experience the historical narrative of Prospect Park through historical photographs from private collections, public archives and New York journalists. The sculpture features three objects of optical illusion: stereoscopes, lenticulars, and prisms—which combine to blend reflections, rainbow-colored light, and history into a singular working system alluding to the intertwined chaos and harmony of public spaces.
