Illuminating Brooklyn’s Sky in Solidarity With Boston
- Lucky Tran wrote in Community, Creativity and Boston
After the bombings in Boston yesterday, the security response was huge in New York. Manhattan was in lockdown, with police swarming everywhere, and people were told by the authorities to run and hide inside their homes. So we decided to stay in Brooklyn and project on one of it’s most iconic and most loved buildings: the Brooklyn Academy of Music. BAM didn’t know about it, and at first security was suspicious, but as soon as they saw the message, they embraced us with approval. Even police officers who drove by gave us a warm nod and beep. It was a sweet moment when we saw a plea for peace trump the rules…
Brooklyn-based Ivan Navarro’s new installations at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in NYC, USA.
‘Eco 1 (Cherry)’ (picture above) and ‘Horizion’ are two neon light sculptures/installations that play with neon light, perspective views and one way mirrors.
Check out last year’s Navarro exhibition: Heaven or Las Vegas (interesting but not as effective in my opinion).
Simple, clever and effective, this is defnitely how to use an ipad… it makes me want to get one to “make future magic”… I love this because it’s pretty much what the Audi robots in Trafalgar Sq did for LDF 2010 but without the fanfare…
