The Tight Spot art installation is basically a giant inflated globe that has been smushed between two pillars and a concrete wall. It can easily symbolize the way manmade objects and structures are crushing the world, slowly but surely. Although a simple work of art, it carries a heavy and powerful message.

To be put on display during the last two weeks in September under the High Line in a space recently acquired by the Pace Gallery, the Tight Spot art installation will pique the interest of passersby before construction commences on the gallery's expansion. The Tight Spot installation will be accompanied by speakers that will emit low-frequency sounds of the artist's voice to entice people from the surrounding streets and elevated park to discover it.
