Mary Miss makes site-specific artwork aimed at making abstractions like site history and environmental function tangible to the public. Her work, from the 1960s through the present, has engaged issues and practices of landscape, architecture, infrastructure and ecology. She has participated in a number of park design projects, including proposals for New York City’s Riverside Park South and Orange County California’s Great Park. Her most trafficked work is installed in the Union Square Subway Station, where red frames of varying shapes and sizes call attention to the lost industrial history of the space.
