The Creators Project DUMBO: Saturday Update + Join The Global Photomontage
We couldn’t have lucked out with more beautiful weather today. The sun is shining and the light breeze makes strolling around the neighborhood super pleasant—definitely catch the ferry if you haven’t headed down yet.
Brazilian Creator Emicida just got off stage at Tobacco Warehouse, where United Visual Artists’ Origin is already blinking and reacting to curious onlookers. If you’re around, make sure to stop by the massive sound sculpture later as the blinking LEDs only get more mesmerizing as day turns to night.
Across the street, Jonathan Glazer and J. Spaceman with Undisclosable and One of Us’ immersive sound installation (that debuted at Coachella) will make you feel as if you’re floating on into another world, and be sure to catch Life on Mars Revisited by David Bowie, Mick Rock and Barney Clay… it will make you feel as if you’re in a cage surrounded by Ziggy Stardust himself.
Over at Powerhouse, we’re screening Night Fishing, by Korean brothers PARKing CHANce (PARK Chan-wook and PARK Chan-Kyong), which was shot entirely on an iPhone. Read more about the film here.
Coming up soon are much anticipated sets by A$AP Rocky and Chairlift at the Archway, Teen Daze and John Maus at Tobacco Warehouse and Chris Keating of Yeasayer at 55 Washington, where you can also play with some interactive art. We’re Tweeting as bands take the stage, so follow us @creators.
As you probably know, New York is the lastest stop on this year’s global tour. We’ve asked attendees at each stop to capture their experiences through Instagram photos and share them with the world—this year alone we’ve collected thousands. Now we’re asking you to add to the narrative by tagging your Instagram photos with #Creators.
