New Museum - Re-Configured
Outdoor video performance/installation on Jersey Street in Manhattan.
Flash:Light, Festival of Ideas for the New City, 2011
Commenting upon the museum's impact on the surrouding neighborhood, this piece presents a moving image of the skin of the New Museum transposed on buildings several blocks away.
The museum as an illusion of itself.
The images fold themselves around the corners, the facade.
The buildings disappear as what they are and reappear as a moving surface.
An illusion of something else, gliding along the narrow path.
I use the façade of the New Museum as my source.
The face of the Museum.
Out of this shell I create what could be its content – reconfigured.
The museum upside down, fragmented, distorted, twisted, contracted, expanded,
floating along Jersey street.
The façade facing itself.
