38 Feet Tall, 8400 Mosaic Tiles

The subway posters designed for SVA always amaze and delight. In this case the original poster design by Louise Fili was transformed into a 3 story mosaic. A transformation that may be miraculous, but not quite mystical, since the original poster was designed in a the style of a mosaic. However the final billboard size boasts 38 vertical feet and 8,400 tiles. Quite a stretch from the paper versions stuffed into displays throughout the MTA. An additional fact that I found to be pretty coincidental is that the arrow on the poster points to both the School of Visual Arts building on which it is constructed as well as Louise Fili’s own studio.
