Our studio has transformed 1014, a project space in the Upper East Side into a hyper-reality testing environment. It was populated with a series of experiential futures prototypes that investigate our relationships in a spectrum of post-oil scenarios.
In a private walkthrough, Heather Davis (Eugene Lang College, The New School), Elizabeth Henaff (NYU IDM), Timothy Furstnau (Museum Of Capitalism) and Karen Pinkus (Cornell University, Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, Ithaca) were invited to immerse themselves into these alternative imaginations that explore new values and imaginaries for a post-petro New York City.
In a following public online roundtable and showcase participants were invited to delve into these scenarios together with our visiting critics and responded and discussed the provocations that the students have crafted over the course of the semester.
