Waking (1984) , the prismatic High Line Billboard by artists Gilbert & George, draws the eye like a magnet. However, unlike most billboards vying for your gaze on any given day in New York City, this one gazes back.
Such a captivating work of art was bound to inspire photographers, and Waking began to appear frequently in our Flickr pool . We found these shots by Steven Severinghaus particularly striking.
Waking will be on view at West 18th Street through Tuesday, October 1.
