IT'S A WIDE WIDE WORLD

While walking around the art scene in Chelsea you might think that your ears are fooling you because as you approach the corner of 25th and Tenth Avenue you hear what sounds like a loud base drum beating very loudly...however, it is the installation art piece by David Byrne at the The Pace Gallery's temorary site.
TIGHT SPOT is a huge inflatable terrestrial globe that is squeezed in the space bordered by the High Line bridge above and the brick walls at the sides. The globe emanates a low-frequency sound that can be heard from the surrounding streets and the High Line Park – provided there’s not too much competing noise from the cars and trucks in the streets. 
David Byrne: Tight Spot / The Pace Gallery, located at 508 West 25th Street, Chelsea New York. Closes on Saturday, October 1st
