For XYZ-NYC 10 Downing\, the pair cha llenges the perception of visitors through optical illusion devices and ins tallations designed to force visitors to experience and interpret alternate points of view.

Some of the works blu r the boundaries between real and represented space. Their works rely on th e interaction of the participant with architecturally-scaled spaces in whic h both the viewer and the surrounding environment are strategically displac ed in myriad ways.

The work seeks to ch allenge the participants’ experience of a particular site\, as well as thei r experience of the act of looking itself. The encounter produced is at onc e both intimate and dramatic and has a poetic and philosophical dimension t hat questions the nature of the real and the limits of the self.

Stonehenge Partners has donated a sp ace in the heart of the West Village- the neighborhood where bohemian cultu re was born and trendsetters still thrive. Amongst the various panels\, and artist talks\, we seek to question the importance of such a trendsetting n eighborhood\, including its various birthed movements\, and how the origina l population has moved on\, changing the overall perception of this cultura l birth site.
