ELECTRIC BATHING
Conceived and Created by Sarah Provost and Lake Simons:

Nice Blog Post for “Electric Bathing”

Coney Island circa 1910. Two garment factory workers escape from respectability into a world of fantasy where shirtwaists become kites, fans transform into seagulls, hatboxes are rides, spools of thread are anchors, and ropes are the ocean tide.

THIS BLESSED PLOT
Conceived and Written by Marc Wolf and Robert Westfield

From the Roman Forum to Zuccotti Park… Wolf and Westfield take the battle of Central Park, fought between Robert Moses and Joe Papp in 1959, to explore the never-ending struggle over Public Space.

New York City 1968 – Jane Jacobs, mother, urban theorist and downtown activist has successfully defeated Robert Moses. She’s the toast of the town. But with two sons coming of age and the Vietnam war escalating, she’s forced to make a choice: stay in America or move to Canada.

BLIND SPOT
Conceived and Created by Leonora Loeb

A presentation of a series of videos and projections that collage urban images. This installation clashes scale- from diorama to larger than life- where inauthentic documentation reveals traces of a workspace’s history of ideas.
