New York-based artist Asakash Nihalani created “Landline“, a series of performance installations realized by using tape and brightly colored paper to create stunning optical illusions with simple geometric shapes.

“In these new outdoor works, colorful bars pass through individuals, connecting them to each other and functioning as extensions of the urban landscape,” Nihalani says. “The participants examine their own insides and connections, a visual expression of both the isolation and community I often feel living in Brooklyn. We spend so much time existing in virtual reality, these works are a visible connection to the real world.
