New York amazes passers-by with cable art

Sculptures made of old elevator cables can be seen in an open-air exhibition on a traffic island on Broadway in the middle of Manhattan.

The seven great works are by the Taiwanese artist Kang Muxiang and are standing on a traffic island on Broadway in the middle of Manhattan.

Elevator cable rolled to an sculpture

The elevator cables were once installed in a high-rise building in the Taiwanese capital Taipei. Artist Kang recycled the thick cables into man-high embyro-like figures.
