Ultratope 1: Real City — Talk and Reception

For NYU Community

Hear from the creator of Ultratope 1: Real City, a new, temporary urban art installation developed by [USER:196|profilelink], director of NYU-Poly’s Brooklyn Experimental Media Center and assistant professor of digital media.

The installation features visual projections on the Manhattan Bridge’s colonnade in Lower Manhattan that pay tribute to everyday New Yorkers, past and present, and their role shaping the character of the city.

Supported by Sam Schwartz Engineering and the Bridge Centennial Commission, the installation is part of the Department of Transportation’s Urban Art Program’s Arterventions track and features basic information such as the names and birthplaces of people who immigrated to New York City projected onto the colonnade’s frieze from now until March 31.
