Robert Hickman's Convex Disk at Roosevelt Island is a freestanding sculpture for the Roosevelt Island subway station. The artwork captures, concentrates, and reflects light like a beacon. It is composed of almost half a million hand-cut and reassembled glass pieces, and brilliantly faces the Manhattan skyline from its outpost on the East river. The sculpture was prominently featured in Glass Magazine and Review Magazine.
