/////////////////////////////////////////////////

From the theft of fire [by Prometheus], to contamination through water [Leviticus]; echoing the home of invention and the cornerstone laying by Charles Carroll of Carrollton; a commercial enterprise dissolves the myth of bullets and opens onto hope as poison at the bottom of Pandora’s box.

Scattering the fragments of history to the sound of falling water, this once tallest building in the US becomes a site of modest explorations and play.

Featuring site specific performances, video, drawing, installation, food, and lectures.

New Public Sites – Phoenix Shot Tower: Views From Below


Exchanging historical vistas from the tower’s rooftop with street-level contemporary sites, Views From Below re-views the iconic Phoenix from overlooked, interstitial vantages. Hanging within the frame of the “Views From the Top” educational display, pedestrian photos of the tower hover directly in front of skyscraper views from the tower. Instead of looking out from above, the participant looks towards from below. Free maps locate the vista-reversals, encouraging participants to see the new public sites for themselves. Drifting pedestrian views subvert the tower’s rarefied vistas by situating the participant within accessible moments of invisible public space.

New Public Sites
Situated within disparate urban zones of overlap, rupture, ambiguity and interstice, the ongoing New Public Sites project addresses how lost spaces and overlooked features of the city are experienced at a pedestrian level. The project starts with a radically expanded understanding of civic space and proposes alternatives for representing and activating the potential for such under-recognized sites.
