You know how when you’re late to the movies but that hulking construction of wood by the subway station stairs catches your attention with its self-importance, seeming lack of purpose and seductive geometry? Here’s one at the C train stop in Greenwich Village that reminds vaguely of Oscar Tuazon’s contemporary installation at the Kunsthalle Bern.

“Tuazon is as interested in the inherent formlessness of his structures as he is in their utility,” the Whitney explains. Sounds about right.
