Sept. 7

 

NYC and Knoxville friends and colleagues:

 

A new work by SURVIVAL DESIGN (Jason S. Brown + Elizabeth Scofield)

entitled

GREEN ROOF, will be

featured in a mobile art show that will be traveling around NYC for the

next

10 days. Installed on the

roof of a large truck (see attached JPG), GREEN ROOF is part of a

collective

public art happening called

cell2Cell2CELL presented by the RIDER project.

 

Between Sept. 7 - 16, we will be parking the truck at the times listed

in the

PDF and exhibiting in

Williamsburg, Chelsea, Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Olympus Fashion

Show,

Glowlab’s CONFLUX and

outside of the Whitney Museum of American Art.

 

OPENING tonight Thursday September 7, Galapagos art space, 70 North 6th

Street, Williamsburg 6-10

pm. If you are in NYC and want to find me and the truck, please call my

cell

phone 865-300-3175.

 

Thanks for your support of our work!

 

Jason and Elizabeth

 

GREEN ROOF consists of 70 blades of lime green grass with purple tips,

appearing to grow out of the

roof of the truck. Although the materials are artificial and synthetic,

the

forms are modeled on the

structure of long blades of grass. We intend to create an intriguing

and

absurd situation, that might

generate public conversation about the ecological possibilities of

green roof

design in urban areas.

 

Survival Design is a collective group of artists who work in urban and

rural

spaces to temporarily alter

the landscape in order to question human relationships with the natural

world.

Designed to invite

audience participation, our projects challenge viewers to engage in a

civic

dialogue about individual,

community, and place.
