“Pictures at an Exhibition,” as in I have one included in a group exhibition.
Night, a 2007 image from an installation of Heart Beats Light is included in New York University’s Photo and Emerging Media 2014-2015 Faculty and Staff Exhibition. The exhibition opened on September 2, 2014 and closes on October 9, 2014. The show is in two locations: the Gulf + Western Gallery (1st Floor, rear lobby) and the 8th Floor Gallery, 721 Broadway New York, NY 10003.
My piece is at the 721 Broadway location. Admission is free and open to the public.
Yesterday’s forty-five day extension of a public comment period by the current presidential administration follows 106 days after the stated change in what most would consider business as usual. This delay is a symbolic gesture to all concerned with anthropogenic effects on our biosphere and our climate – including the United Nations.
I am still processing the information in this film and would recommend it to anyone interested in environmentalism, human rights, their future, or their now. The information in this film will change the way that you see the world.
For the past two years I have walked past the Gallatin building on my way to 721 Broadway (where I recently graduated from ITP!).
A long-time New Yorker, I have a fondness for the historic architecture of downtown – especially those which comprise the New York University campus.
Yesterday I had a bit of a shock when I saw steel L brackets bolted to otherwise pristine faces of granite blocks framing the windows on the Gallatin building’s south-facing 1 Washington Place side.
I understand that scaffolding must be put in place for various types of construction and why. I simply have never seen an invasive attachment like the one on Gallatin.
Even if there isn’t secondary fracturing and the bolt holes are plugged with epoxy, those otherwise pristine faces will never be the same and their deterioration will now accelerate requiring maintenance where none would have been needed.
The cavalier treatment of this historic building is a crime against culture, history, and property. These are the actions of someone who has decided that the preservation of historic architecture has little to no value: unless they — or an affiliate — will be hired to continually repair the damage which they have begun.
Tritium, a radioactive isotope of the element Hydrogen, continues to leak from nearly every civilian site of nuclear power generation. The concern with Tritium is that it bonds with Oxygen and easily enters the biosphere as a radioactive water molecule which then emits ionizing Alpha particles where ever it travels, or lodges.
No longer content with the sale of property and goods, the Supreme Court has recently converted the political system of the United States for sale to those corporate entities willing to spend the most. So before our new masters get around to having more laws changed in their favor, this is a good time to support Earth Justice.
“Earthjustice was created by a small group of attorneys with a passionate belief that the power of the law could be used to preserve the environment. They helped establish the right of citizens to go to court to enforce environmental laws when the government couldn’t or wouldn’t.”– Trip Van Noppen, Earthjustice President
