We were on a swiftly moving train at night somewhere along New Jersey’s string of sprawling seaside towns when the lights suddenly went out in the train car except for the signage that read “This Station.”

We were mesmerized by this light installation artwork by Jim Campbell when we saw it recently at the 2013 Armory Show in New York. The artwork has such depth and dimensionality, it changes as you walk around it and view it from different angles.
