Nicolas Lobo, Brutal Workout
Nicolas Lobo, Brutal Workout

Miami residents now have one more excuse to go outside and enjoy the sun: the new Underline, a 10-mile park beneath the city’s Metrorail, which will feature rotating public artworks. The first selection of works, which opened on Jan. 14, includes Nicolas Lobo’s “Brutal Workout” — a 10-by-10-foot cube with steel bars that curve and straighten to resemble the lines of the Metrorail itself. The cube will flip into different positions, inspiring different workouts on the bars. To test it out, Lobo brought in a dancer and a parkour troupe. “They were into it,” he says. “It implies a certain kind of choreography. Your body can move through it in different ways.”
