Sleepwalker at the High Line Park

Sleepwalker at the High Line Park

Sleepwalker - a realistic sculpture by Tony Matelli of a somnambulant man roaming about in a deep sleep.

While I was photographing, many people were confusing it for a "living statue" performer. One man even put money by the statue and a high-line worker had to explain to him that this was a statue and wouldn't have any use for his money. Everyone laughed.
