Location Washington Square Park
Above is a map that was created from the sat. documentation.
We decided upon Washington Square Park because of the highly contrasted demographic that its location allows for.
There is a mixture of NYU students and faculty, the crowd attracted by the east village, street performers and artist, tourist, and the locals from the surrounding neighborhood. This creates a rich mixture of culture and personality.
A few things that interest us about engaging within a space:
playing with scale/ the scale of objects, space, perspective, etc
the digital and physical and how they collide, interact, and negotiate with each other in the larger context of american society
tourist exploitation (best photo spot here)
Human powered shredder
Telephone game — (telephone rings, ask a question and answer is saved or broadcast, etc)
