Too Much Future

Too Much Future is a new work of public art from the Whitney Museum’s #Public Art series. Each piece is installed on the facade of a building across the street from the New York City institution and can also be viewed from the popular High Line. Deaf artist Christine Sun Kim’s work pairs text with a rendering of the sign for “future” in American Sign Language, which generally illustrates the term as a thin line. However, here Kim reimagines the concept as a heavy black form, suggesting the weight of the future on today.
