Turn Around Surround: Galaxy Dancefloor
Danehy Park is the restoration of a site that originally provided the clay that most bricks in Cambridge and Boston come from. Forced by new environmental regulations to close, through the 1970s and 1980s, the City decided to invest heavily in its rehabilitation as a wonderful recreational park, which was sorely needed. / Located on top of the central mound, at the highest point in Cambridge, overlooking the rest of the park, is the Galaxy Dancefloor, a site of celebration. / The Galaxy is an image of whirling energy and offers a notion of continuity and cycling in opposition to the wasted materials beneath the mound but in harmony with the strangely re-used rubber now on top which has now become a celebratory Dance Floor with a great view overlooking Cambridge and beyond. / Courtesy Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, New York.
