La ciudad está sufriendo una
tansformación dramática. Uno, documentamos la transformación a la vez que
ocurre y dos, ofrecemos una explicación filosófica de este cambio en el
contexto de la cultura en la que ocurre. Este tipo de transformación ocurre
todo el tiempo y en cada ciudad pero en
diferentes formas. Fui parte de ese cambio cuando era niña en Madrid en 1971 y
lo fui de nuevo en Nueva York en 1999.
The city is undergoing a dramatic
transformation. One, we document the transformation while it is happening and.
Two, we offers a philosophical explanation of the change in the context of
culture. This kind of change hapens all the time in different forms in every
city. It happened around me when I was a kid in Madrid in 1972; it happened in
New York in 1999.
Engaging with public audience: A T-SHIRT;
A SHOW; A BOOK
A BOOK. The project consists in two
separates items: a collections of photographs and a series of essays. The book
will start with photos alone and then the texts. These two tracks run in
parallel. The first part "Why Condo," a philosophical explanation of the
condominium, will be represented by pictures taking with a panoramic camera,
documenting before and after of significant areas of New York where
transformation have happened, such as Times Square, Williamsburg and the Meat
Market District. The second part "What is behind current developments?," will
be complemented with a selection of pictures of lots in different phases of
transformation: a parking lot will become a condo, the hole for the foundation
of the building, the actual construction and finally the building. These
photographs will be also in black and white but in more detail taken with a
8x10 camera. The book will be approximately 120 pages long. A SHOW: The
pictures that will be printed in the book will be on show at the Van Allen
Institute. A T-SHIRT: "I Condo NY" will be printed on T-shirts and packaged to
go with the book and exhibited in the show.
