Constructed entirely of reclaimed materials, the elevated platform and cistern will feed a gravity-fed, garden irrigation system while serving as public observation deck and hangout spot. Participants are invited to climb, stand, sit and relax on the site-specific, pedestrian furniture while enjoying a ceremonial demonstration of the new watering system. Meanwhile, the adjacent Kiosk will feature a wrap-around painting of geometric abstraction derived from the tower architecture and surrounding public space. Food from the garden will be served and all are welcome.

Tinges Commons at Mirkwood Estates is a community garden and collaborative public art space located on the southeast corner of 33rd and Frisby Streets in Waverly. The site of organic interaction is sponsored by the Better Waverly Community Organization, Greater Homewood Community Corporation, Parks and People, John Hopkins University and Charm City Cakes.

NPS-AD: Intrepid Walking Tour Drifts Through Arlington’s Invisible Sites

Thank you to everyone who joined me on the New Public Sites – Arlington Drift walking tour last Saturday. From undead condo projects to underground rivers, I learned a lot during our hour-long journey together. I hope you enjoyed seeing Balston’s invisible sites as much as I did. May our floating zone of radical pedestrianism continue with infinite freedom.

New Public Sites Arlington Drift map

Among towers, over voids, within our fleeting reflective movements
there live vistas invisible and playscapes for all.

Immersed in the sublime matter of place,
grasping these moments of our daily passing,
drifting through infinite sites of freedom,
we test the limits of space public
and cultivate situations unseen.

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

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.

Desperate Times at Subbasement Artists Studios

Desperate Times exhibition

Desperate Times exhibition

I will be participating in the upcoming Desperate Times, the upcoming show at Subbasement Artist Studios, opening Saturday September 11th and running through October 9th. Five emerging Baltimore artists will exhibit work reflecting a broad range of dystopian anxieties in response to the present state of society and culture.

Opening reception Saturday September 11th, from 7 – 9 p.m.
Subbasement Artist Studios are located 118 N Howard St., Baltimore MD

Darrell Appelzoller’s photographs are built into topographically inspired 3-dimensional islands, exploring issues of individual isolation amidst a wealth of technological communicational devices while we live together in increasingly closer proximity to one another. BHIBTB makes video installations inspired by science fiction films and literature. His videos show a future world in which Utopia seems to have finally come to be a reality, yet this future is extreme in its sterility, sublimely cultish, and Orwellian in its nature. Graham Coreil-Allen’s ongoing project, New Public Sites, exposes the absurd, overlooked, and banal, aspects of the metropolis’ we inhabit through guided tours, videos, and installations, “playfully exploring a thrilling urban sublime through drifting symbols of invisible sites”. Matthew Fishel’s work takes a significantly darker tone. Cinematic in their nature, Fishel’s videos and animations are inspired by, and are in response to, classic science fiction films and Hollywood’s current fascination with apocalyptic scenarios. Sarah McNeil has created a world in which all is not lost. Her sculptures, animations and installations follow the exploits of the Bricoleur Dream Brigade, who with their wit, cleverness, and fantastical devices, combat the negative energies and pervasive cynicism of the current moment, healing individuals and leaving the world a better place than they found it. Desperate Times is curated by Jason Irla who has brought together this group of five artist who’s disparate methods of working are all conceptually linked to finding ways in which to navigate the dystopian world we inhabit. Please join Subbasement Artist Studios, the five artists, and the curator, at an opening reception Saturday September 11th, from 7 – 9 p.m.

Subbasement Artist Studios are open Sunday through Friday by appointment only. For more information please call 410-659-6950, email info@subbasementartiststudios.com or visit us at www.subbasementartiststudios.com
