Esther Stocker’s “Fragmented space’ fields of vectors and points that seem to form much larger volumes and spaces. Elements seem to line up, lines begin to intersect or diverge and volumes and spaces begin to form and evolve. The high contrast of the black lines on the white space, combined with the unexpected geometric clarity provide for interesting and changing optical effects, that you want to interact with and change your viewing perspective on. Her work almost seems to be a pause in an additive process, or inversely a pause in a slow, methodical explosion.

Richard Serra

Richard Serra tilted arc ocated at Federal Plaza in New York City caused much attention just after the sculpture installed.Tilted Arc is a curving wall of raw steel, 120 feet long and 12 feet high, that carves the space of the Federal Plaza in half. Those working in surrounding buildings must circumvent its enormous bulk as they go through the plaza. According to Serra, this is the point, “The viewer becomes aware of himself and of his movement through the plaza. As he moves, the sculpture changes. Contraction and expansion of the sculpture result from the viewer’s movement. Step by step the perception not only of the sculpture but of the entire environment changes.”

Banksy

Many of Banksy’s works are considered site specific, as his graffiti is done on site and often his works respond to the public space as political and social commentary. Here is an example of Banksy’s distinct stencil, comments his social view (or not) on the local parking space, or to a broader stand such as the human acts to freedom.

Tidal

Jenene Nagy’s Tidal begins with the long rows of fluorescent bulbs, mounted about a foot above the floor, extend down Disjecta’s entryway, giving the invitation to viewers for the walk to the space is the first step. The gallery is enormous in space, build with the rafters. Jenene calls the piece “Tidal” as literally  the painted magenta drywall planes move from the floor to the wall and are up to the rafters. Engaging the space as the whole is the key to site specific installation, giving viewers the experience of watching the work, rather than seeing.
