water lines is an intervention/performance situating West 14th Street as the center point in an investigation of Manhattan’s dynamic built and natural environment. During the day, the artists will be on site, performing as pseudo surveyors—measuring the topography and developing maps of the area. At night, evolving map collages – containing various layers of geographic expansion, flood lines, and historical fragments of the area – will be projected on surfaces, sides, and facades of buildings on and near West 14th Street, from Tenth Avenue to the Hudson River.
Jeff Kasper, Sophie Cooke
Cooke perceives memories as integral parts of what bind and destroy perceived reality, leaving trails of dynamic sediment through which she digs and extracts momentary cross-sections of time/space. Kasper explores the perception of place and the issues of documenting the politics and poetics of the city.
