Festival of Ideas for the New City: The Heterogeneous City

(8 years ago)
Festival of Ideas for the New CityMembers: Vito Acconci, Jonathan Bowles, Rosanne Haggerty, Suketu MehtaModerator: Jonathan F.P. RoseThe panel discussion on the Heterogeneous City brought together five different accounts of heterogeneity in New York City in terms of history, culture, zoning policies, industry demographics, and its public spaces and architecture.The panel kicked off with Jonathan F.P. Rose's remark that humans in the city tend to view their surroundings in either the individualistic "Me" map or the colllectivist "We" map that is more aware of social networks.Suketu Mehta, professor of Journalism at New York University, credits the "generosity and the reduction of personal space" as necessary cultural shifts to be made by inhabitants of ethnically diverse megacities facing population booms and infrastructural lag. Mehta makes an especially articulate and passionate appeal for a New York that in its current Disneyfied state could also accomodate the quality of a city that is "unpredictable and many-splendored," and praises (or eulogizes) a kind of citizen that might be long gone: the "good New Yorker"—one who in the past decades, remained in New York even when it didn't make economic sense to do so.(more...)

BrokenOff BrokenOff: Brad Ascalon "Reflection"

(8 years ago)
"Reflection," in progress. Brad Ascalon, 2011.Brad Ascalon met Tobias Wong through the New York design scene in the early aughts. "I met him at the Haute Green show but I already knew his work and was mesmerized by what he did and how he went about doing it," Ascalon explains. Fast-forward a couple of years and the group with no name began meeting; an informal gathering of nine New York City-based designers to share ideas and maybe a couple of drinks. Tobias Wong was part of this group and although they had attempted a previous group exhibition, BrokenOff BrokenOff will be their first group project—a tribute to their beloved friend and colleague.Core77: For the show all of you are taking one of Tobias' pieces and using it as a starting point and an inspiration for your own work. Why did you choose the "Mirror Puzzle?"Brad Ascalon: What speaks to me about that piece is that it reflects the environment. It is not a static image. It is not something that you create, you put aside, and that's the end of it. To me, it's this notion that physical representation is only part of something, of an idea. The fact that there is no static image but a changing image solidifies that idea. It is never final. "Puzzle Mirror" Tobias Wong, 2002.Thinking about Tobi and that piece: the legacy that he left in design will be echoed for a long time. We see it in young designers today, particularly here in the United States. The show itself signifies the impact that he has had on so many[..]
