CBS goes to the #WorldsFair … and the Hall of Science.  In 1964.

The 1964-65 World’s Fair opened 50 years ago yesterday.  But the Hall of Science did not.  You can see the Hall still under construction in background left of this photo.  Find out more about why we were delayed here.

Reclaim It!

image

Tonight, we are presenting the New York debut of Empire Drive-In, a
drive-in movie theater where the cars are provided. Movies, live
performances and the chance to climb in and out of wrecked cars has
people buzzing.

But a deeper message underlies the fun of the outdoor shows. Artists
Todd Chandler and Jeff Stark created Empire Drive-In to get people
thinking about creative reuse, our disposable car culture, and
technological obsolescence. The 60 cars in the installation come from
a Brooklyn junkyard, the 40-foot screen is made from salvaged wood,
and even the concession stand is made from recycled materials. The
artists reclaimed these discarded materials: piecing them together,
sprucing them up, and putting them to work again.

Now if only we could do the same for our government.

Saturday is for Storytelling

This Saturday night at NYSCI, visitors can collaborate on a story with digital artist and performer, Haeyoung Kim. Part performance, part workshop, Kim’s Moori will use audience members to help create a dynamic narrative. Users will download the Moori app, and use the app to pose questions and answers, and to generate algorithmic sounds and visuals. The result will be an interactive performance featuring collaboration among audience members. Part of Harvestworks’ 2013 New York Electronic Arts Festival, the event begins at 4 pm with Night Games, an interactive dance game, followed by cocktails at 6 pm, and EXPOSED – Sound featuring Moori at 6:30 pm.

Haeyoung Kim is based in New York City and explores the texture of sounds in electronic music. Her work has been presented in various museums and galleries including the American Museum of the Moving Image, PS1, Nam June Paik Center in Korea, and Kunsthalle in Austria.
