Future Archaeology: Canopy Assemblage
Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Ellie Irons, Joseph Moore, Dan Phiffer, Matthew Radune
Friday May 7, 2010 7-10 PM
Engine 212 Firehouse: 134 Wythe Ave.
Future Archaeology is a new artistic collaboration between Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Ellie Irons, Joseph Moore, Dan Phiffer, and Matthew Radune, exploring the cybernetic nature of ecosystems. The first work by Future Archaeology is Canopy Assemblage, a one night only viewing of a living/synthetic forest ecosystem. The raw space of Williamsburg's old firehouse 212 will be transformed into a nebulous territory inhabited by a networked system of light and sound. Viewers will be invited to peer into this dark void from the street, experiencing a landscape that echoes a range of dynamic systems, from fireflies in the tree tops to the far flung constellations of deep space.
The first iteration of this artistic exploration will take place on Friday, May 7th, at the future art space NTHCCC, the Northside Townhall Community and Cultural Center in Williamsburg. For the summer the NTHCCC has awarded several groups of artists a space to present a one night only performance, and Future Archaeology is one of these groups.
