Jessie and Katey: Way Wayback Machine
Way Wayback Machine is inspired by the network of pathways that function above and below New York's surface. This large-scale vinyl artwork, as well as the companion piece on view at 1 MetroTech Center, are both a celebration of the city, paying homage to the unspoken choreography of a place with a polyrhythmic heartbeat.
Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn make up the Baltimore-based artist team better known as Jessie and Katey. Their mission is to transform public spaces into vibrant, playful experiences, and use a highly geometric, abstract language to engage with the history, architecture, and culture of a place. They believe that the aesthetics of one's environments can influence emotions and state of mind. With a passion for people and design, they bring life to unsung spaces through abstract painting.
