The High Line Hotel is a stunning and unique retreat in the heart of the modern Manhattan neighborhood. Originally the General Theological Seminary, designed in the mid-1800’s by architect Charles Haight, and now a Federal Historic Landmark, the High Line Hotel evokes a sense of history that is rare in the contemporary neighborhood. The grounds and rooms of the hotel are saturated with the past. The romantic gardens of the hotel, which were the 17th century apple orchards of Clement Clarke Moore, are now lined with ivy covered trees and candle lit paths. A room called the “Writer’s Suite” reminds patrons that ’Twas the Night Before Christmas was once written here. The dramatically wall-papered rooms complete with cozy four-post beds and dark wood finishes, and a few with gorgeous fireplaces make the hotel truly distinguishable from others in the city.
Zach Hyman's newest installation, "Media Flow" is bringing a splash of color and thought to YOTEL's Green Lounge this month. His colossal sculpture, which consists of over 3,000 colorful plastic balls, juts out from the white walls of the lounge, making it a piece to not be missed. Which goes hand in hand with the story behind it.
So why "Media Flow" you ask? We had the same question for Zach. After playing with these colorful plastic balls for a while, first photographing them, he concluded with the piece you see here. It is a visual interpretation of media, music, art, entertainment and information all in one. He tells us all this mass media is constantly being funneled through an increasingly narrow and limited channel at a rapid rate. Hence the old school phonograph used in the piece- the phonograph represent the start of the flow and the one, lingering black ball by it represents this limited channel. The explosion of colorful plastic balls at the end of the "flow" is a representation all the confusion and chaos that can be brought upon by this type of media exposure. Pretty deep message for what was once used as a child's toy.
