MTA Arts & Design launched Diaphanous Pareidolia, a five-screen digital animated artwork commissioned for Grand Central Madison in NYCby Greek-French artist Eirini Linardaki

I am so proud to share this project with you and all the passengers who travel through Grand Central Madison in the heart of New York City.


Thank you to MTA Arts & Design for developing its fantastic public art program and for allowing me to create and install this series of animations designed for Grand Central.


Ten years after my first project in the USA, one of my dreams has come true - to display art with the MTA for public transportation users. As the proud daughter of a bus driver, my dad often took me with him on his morning bus routes, and I fondly remember sitting at the front and chatting along the way. I know if he were still here, he would be smiling.


Look closely at the animations in this 95-foot-long installation, and you will see many of my friends and family represented as train passengers, including my mom, brother, and dad (who is driving the passing bus!).


All the pattern collages you see reflect the multiculturalism of the city's communities through their colors, designs, and styles.


Thank you to everyone who participated in this project - I am so happy to be part of the MTA Arts & Design program. And a special thank you to my friend Bruno Monteny, who helped me with so many of the technical aspects of this animation program.
