42nd Street Ballroom 1983

by George Rhoads

42nd Street Ballroom was one of George Rhoads’ first audio kinetic sculptures. TheĀ 8 x 8 x 8 plexiglass and steel cube located in Port Authority Bus Terminal is filled with pool balls, chimes, motors, pumps, a moving saw blade, and other mobile objects. In 2010, the piece underwent repairs after it had stopped functioning.
