12. Fast Track and Speedwheels

Dan Sinclair's Fast Track and Speedwheels

Using Aluminum sheets, steel wheels, and brass disks, Dan Sinclair’s Fast Track and Speedwheels is situated in the passageway between the S shuttle and the 4, 5, and 6 lines. The sculptures depict imagery of fast train travel through its spinning gears and pistons. The sculpture also draws from Art Deco shapes and design while revealing a rather futuristic scene.

“I want my sculpture to make people think of the power of the engines that drive the trains, the speed and efficiency of them . . . the sculptures also reflect the architectural elements of Times Square and the Art Deco glamour of Radio City Music Hall,” Sinclair told the MTA.
