We Went to Photograph the New ‘Ziggy’ Installation and Got Into the Action

When the Downtown Alliance invites artists to install something playful and interactive in the neighborhood, it’s a treat for the staff to admire it alongside residents. This season, we collaborated with design studio Hou de Sousa to bring their massive gateway/bench art piece “Ziggy” to 200 Water Street. The sturdy steel structure features neon cords that add a healthy dose of cheerful hues for day and nighttime viewing through Winter 2021.

Here are some of our favorite moments captured less than 24 hours into the art piece’s debut.

Rare moment of quiet.

We suspect this will be the angle everyone wants to shoot (for good reason), but recommend exploring for unique angles.
