A Space Odyssey by Ellsworth Ausby is a series of eight faceted glass triptychs located on the platform of the Marcy Ave. MTA station in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
The artwork expresses our relationship to the universe and connects the infinity of outer space to the hustle and bustle of life in the city. Repeating circular forms represent the swirling cosmos.
Ellsworth Ausby was a Brooklyn-based artist who studied at the School of Visual Arts, where he later taught. He passed away in 2011.
