Iconic Diner Painting Recreated as 3D Pop-Up Installation in NYC

Photos by Filip Wolak.

The diner scene, in which a group of well-dressed patrons sit underneath the golden light of an establishment, is currently on tour in NYC and this pop-up was created by the Whitney Museum of American Art to promote it.

The life-sized version is located at New York City’s Flatiron Prow Artspace. The actual diner featured in Hopper’s painting most likely never existed, but the shape of the Flatiron building captures the “Phillies” diner angular appearance. The display will be up until October 6th.

Original Painting: Nighthawks by Edward Hopper, 1942.

Long Exposure Photo Series: Neon Waterfalls Created With Glow Sticks


“Like a freak midnight rainbow, this ongoing series of lit waterfalls titled Neon Luminance is part of a collaboration between Sean Lenz and Kristoffer Abildgaard over at From the Lenz. The duo dropped high-powered Cyalume glow sticks in a variety of colors into various waterfalls in Northern California and then made exposures varying from 30 seconds to 7 minutes to capture the submerged trails of light as the sticks moved through the current. To accomplish some of the more complicated shots they strung several sticks together at once to create different patterns of illumination. For those of you concerned about pollution, the sticks (which are buoyant) were never opened and were collected at the end of each exposure, thus no toxic goo was mixed into the water.”
