CANCELLED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES

The artists’ canine companion Tuffy will lead an urban wilderness hike from Avenue C (on Friday) and the High Line (on Saturday) to Union Square with the assistance of a special numerological edition of EcoArtTech’s Indeterminate Hikes+: Companion Species app. After boarding the M14 at Union Square for a motorized, gas-powered, unidirectional ride westward on 14th Street, human participants will meet Tuffy at the drop-off point at the High Line. As Tuffy leads us eastward she will select important trees, fire hydrants, and lamp-posts along the way for us to count and map, creating a database inventory of numbered, interspecies, and vertically oriented markers that will become part of the Indeterminate Hikes+ archive.
