"On Saturday, from 2-3:45pm, Glowlab's One Block Radius takes a single city block and anatomizes it, using all kinds of approaches that demonstrate that this future site of the New Museum of Contemporary Art can be seen as a microcosm of NYC. It takes place at 95 Rivington, the block in question runs from Bowery to Chrystie and Stanton to Rivington. Not sure we've done this justice: it's a very cool project."
On One Block Radius:
One Block Radius, a project of Brooklyn artists Christina Ray and Dave Mandl [known collaboratively as Glowlab], is an extensive psychogeographic survey of the block where New York's New Museum of Contemporary Art will build a new facility in late 2004. Engaging a variety of tools and media such as blogs, video documentation, maps, field recordings & interviews, Glowlab creates a multi-layered portrait of the block as it has never been seen before [and will never be seen again]. This website is an interactive archive for the project, which will continue to grow over time as we build a dense data-map of the block.
the new New Museum design.
(I think it looks a little like Zaha Hadid's new museum in Cincinnati?).
