New Public Sites – Symphony Terrace Vista

Symphony Terrace Vista is a continuation of the New Public Sites installation series where I invite participants to explore invisible or unseen public spaces. For NPS-STV I set up neon pink “x”s leading people to the circular, landscape brick terrace structure in front the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra building at Preston Street and Park Avenue. After climbing the odd HVAC structure, one finds three yellow strips of tape that both orient the viewer and frame a fantastic cityscape vista.

This installation was a part of the Wandering: You Are Here show at MICA’s Middendorf gallery that ran December 3-10, 2008.

New Public Sites – Bushwick

By Graham Coreil-Allen
October 7th – the future

New Public Sites – Bushwick, is a collection of four site-specific installations located in appropriated “public” spaces in Bushwick. The sites differ from traditional public spaces in that they are privately owned and have fallen into various forms of “disuse”. The installations consist primarily of subtle incursions of surveyors tape. Gestures of bright pink lines suggest possible paths or points of focus. Participants are invited to investigate each site with caution and curiosity. Explore at your own risk.
