Peepworld, 2007

Alan Wolfson's detailed small-scall urban sculptures have been featured on a few blogs I frequent in the past few weeks, and I couldn't resist posting a close-up from Peepworld, which highlights one of my favorite New York haunts, the Subway Inn (at Lexington and 60th). The red-light attraction next door is a fiction, but this old dive is rather true to form! On his site, Wolfson discusses the legwork that went into creating this piece (which took 18 months to complete).
