Description

Visitors encountered a series of optical colored objects with varying degrees of transparency, reflection and refraction. This variety of optical elements were held by wooden tripods and located on a rooftop in Brooklyn overlooking the skyline of Manhattan. As stations for observing the city from various specific vantage points, the set-up encouraged visual experiences which were activated through the movement of the visitors. The project was a reflection upon the understanding of orientation, identification and negotiation of position within the urban context.
