CREATIVE TIME SUMMIT New York, NY 2012 COMPLETED Cultural 500 sq. ft.
In the Fall 2012, we were commissioned by Creative Time to design an environmental backdrop and temporary seating for their annual Summit. Inspired by the topic of Confronting Inequality we conceived of a modular landscape based on the conceit of re-constructing the World’s seven continents from uniquely design banker’s boxes. On the first day of presentations the continental banker’s boxes were stacked on the stage in a window of two hours to form a backdrop for a range of speakers that included art world luminaries and rural community organizers to international activists. On the second day, the boxes were re-organized and clustered into discussion enclaves where speakers and participants engaged each other directly and used the surface of the boxes to record their conversations. All the materials used were recycled.
