Sculptures Full of Cities

Psychogeography is the act of exploring an urban environment with an emphasis on curiosity and drifting. Or, more colloquially put , a “toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities.” In his most recent series “Psychogeographies,” Dustin Yellin uses multiple layers of glass, each covered in detailed imagery, to create a single intricate, three-dimensional collage with a mix of flowers, leaves, bugs, and magazine cut-outs and acrylic paint.
The figures appear to be frozen in fluid motion. They leap, kick and jump with outstretched arms, evoking images of graceful poise and exuberant self-expression. The figures are further animated by light streaming through the turquoise-tinted glass encasings.

Dustin Yellin’s joyful, glass-encased collage figures at the New York City Ballet are breathing warmth and life into the city’s premier venue for fine performing arts.
