FriendsWithYou is a fine art collaborative of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III. They collaborated and worked collectively since 2002 with the purpose of spreading joy, force play and flood your Instagram with art.
This time, they have brought their playful artistic style to the Standard Hotel in NYC’s Meatpacking District. The Light Cave is a symbol of light and connectivity in an abstract architectural form and is the largest stand-alone sculpture by FriendsWithYou to date.
This 55ft x 25ft x 14ft inflatable is a living breathing monument, pulsating with energy and light, creating a sensory rich experience that unifies viewers under its canopy. The sculpture prompts viewers to explore the vibrantly colored cave, encouraging communal and personal experience.
As explained by the artists, “Light Cave is a cathedral of the spirit. This interactive experience is manifested with the purpose of joining people together in a metaphysical sense.”
