Ghost Trainby Jon Laing
ABOUT THE ART
This piece is called "Ghost Train" for a number of reasons. First, the "Ghost Train" is the nickname of the G line which runs between Brooklyn and Queens in New York City. Second, each passenger is a vaporous apparition to every other. They're publicly isolated, barely aware of the other people around them. Lastly, this piece is also about culture separation and ethnic enclaves in Brooklyn.
