Large Scale Public Artwork Transforms Philadelphia’s Railway Landscape into Real Time Paintings

Conceived as a temporary installation, Katharina Grosse's "psychylustro" is a monumental creation that changes the way you think about getting from point A to point B. Grosse used her signature spray-paint technique to transform seven sites between downtown's 30th Street Station and North Philadelphia Station into a series of bold colorized landscapes that explore scale, perspective and the passage of time. Framed through the windows of the train, the large-scale installation generates real-time paintings that are meant to be seen in motion. Installation, curator Liz Thomas says, " The moving trains allowed Grosse to play with a wider number of variables: the viewer's perspective will change based on which direction they're traveling, how fast the train is going, and which track the train is using. The goal, Thomas says, is to create "a beautiful disruption into a daily routine."
