Kubricht's piece takes up space on a future portion of the High Line currently closed to the public, but it's clearly viewable from the park's northern end. The work consists of two shipping containers painted in a bold black-and-white geometric camouflage pattern called Dazzle, which was used on ships during World War I. Its similarity to certain kinds of hard-edge abstraction is striking, but mainly the artist is interested in how the paint scheme changes your perception of the containers, especially as you look at them from different directions.
