Tilda sleeping

March 24, 2013 § 1 Comment

Happening now!

Visitors at the MoMA today will be surprised to see Tilda Swinton taking a nap inside a glass box.


It’s part of the Maybe installation that Tilda has been performing in Museums since 1995. Tilda just shows up and takes a nap – nobody knows when or where inside the museum, not even MoMA staff. So, if you’re around check it out now!


This is what MoMA had to say about it:

An integral part of The Maybe’s incarnation at MoMA in 2013 is that there is no published schedule for its appearance, no artist’s statement released, no museum statement beyond this brief context, no public profile or image issued. Those who find it chance upon it for themselves, live and in real—shared—time: now we see it, now we don’t.

Watching the city from above: “the constant flow of taxis, the merging of traffic, the waves of pedestrians crossing at the change of traffic lights, and the sounds of honking horns and sirens”. That is what fascinates New York-based photographer Navid Baraty in his amazing series of photos of New York City.

Listen to your city

May 26, 2011 § 2 Comments

What would we learn if , instead of just looking at our cities, we could listen to them? SoundAffects, an experiential project by Parsons The New School for Design, tries to answer this question by turning everyday things like weather and traffic into sounds.

Placing sensors around a New York City block for our week, SoundAffects tracked objects, temperature, light, weather and so on, assigning each variable a color and sound.  Thus, everyday things acquired a life of their own and, of course, a musical sound.
