I imagined reinventing the places in which I spend my time so that I would like them as much as being outdoors. For exhibits such as “A Chance to Linger,” Marko and I had created photo-based art of scenes we wanted to inhabit and wished to re-experience, much like compositions of music that you will listen to many times. The Temperament of Space themes were first visualized and orchestrated in collaboration with the musician Tomas Uribe. Based in the School of Media Studies at The New School, we were able to workshop ideas with graduate students from our program and Parsons. All wanted the environments to be responsive to their presence. Thus began an exploration into user-friendly programming, low cost elements, easy-to-assemble modules.

Collaboration is at the heart of these multi-media interactions. We  would love to team up with you for a semester, a year, an event. We are available for community engagement and workshops in your venue. Faculty and student participation has been vital to our vision. If you would like join the Media Studies team as a volunteer, assistant or independent study, let’s talk.
