A Sharper Lens is a battery of sculptures built out of discarded materials illustrating a battle between an artillery cannon and an Iron Dome. While alluding to Governor Island’s military history, these pieces of “military equipment” actually function as kinetic Kaleidoscopes. Through imagination, visitors engaged in a battle of perceptions projecting fragmented views onto the landscape.
