  • Is There Hope for the Technically Challenged?
    new york NEW YORK

    Lisa Snyder (Associate Director of the Experiential Technologies Center, UCLA) specializes in the use of interactive virtual reality environments to study and teach about historic urban environments. For the Israel Antiquities Authority, she created a 3-D interactive digital reconstruction of the Temple Mount complex, and, more recently, she’s developed a computer simulation of the 1893 World’s Colombian Exposition. Based on extensive archaeological and historical research, her highly detailed computer reconstructions allow users to explore built environments that no longer exist.

    “The machine aesthetic is everywhere,” observed the New York Times of HL23 when it rose above the High Line in 2011, noting that the 14-story Chelsea building’s eastern panels were partially manufactured on the same presses used to make parts for Mercedes trucks. This event brings Los Angeles architect Neil Denari (NMDA) and New York developer Alf Naman (Alf Naman Real Estate Advisors) together to discuss HL23’s realization, from its aerodynamic design and site relationship to its significance for New York’s high-end real estate market.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    rob LEY (of URBANA): Draper is permanent installation for the Visual Arts Department building at Florida State University.

    Composed of hundreds of unique stainless steel strips, this project is an experiment in how mass and gravity, along with an experimental force-feedback fabrication technique can create a carefully tuned lattice structure. At 75′ in height, the project passes through 5 separate floors and sub-departments of a visual arts school, offering each level a unique view of the project.

    Christy Lange has noted that Beasley’s ‘sculptures and photographs, as mute and minimal as they appear, unexpectedly open onto literary worlds’. Working between sculpture and photography – often printing at a 1:1 scale – allows Beasley to ask sculptural questions of the photographic and to interrogate the sculptural from the position of the photographic object. Conceptual and instinctual attitudes are bound intensely into the centre of her practice. . . .
