New Project Mondays: Week 1

Broken City Lab: new project Mondays

Monday night we spent a couple hours working over some new ideas with some new friends. Mostly, these ideas have been in the “meaning to do that” category, mostly opening up new collaborations in which new projects will unfold.

Two main project frameworks came out of our brainstorm session—a floating sculpture project with the Green Corridor and a documentary video project with a local filmmaker.

Using the bursts of exhaust air coming from subways in New York, artist Joshua Allen Harris combines plastic bags and tape to create these inflatable sculptures that rise and die with the constant passing of subway trains.

The use of existing conditions and materials to create something so great is incredible.

You can watch a number of videos of the works in motion at New York Magazine or Wooster Collective.
