Alluding to Robert Smithson’s spiral jetty and Dorothy’s yellow brick road, Launch is a tiled path that appears propped up by flotation devices. Unwinding towards the East River, it never makes it past the guardrail, and seems to be caught in a moment of hesitation, a sink-or-swim second of doubt that belies its sunny surface.
