The morning after…

Saturday was amazing and a lot of fun! Our good friends at Nuit Blanche and all of the other organizers of the many events really tore the roof off in the Bowery. It was one of those nights that really makes us realize why we love living and working in NYC .  Great to see creative people prove that they not only know how to party, but that they can get people on the streets to stop and wonder how the city can be made better through art and design. The hangover was definitely worth it!

SOFTlab @ Flash:Light!

Hope you all will make it downtown this weekend for the New Museum’s Festival of Ideas For the New City. A lot of fun and interesting projects are going on around, near, and all over the Bowery! We are producing an installation out of 1500 LEDs and a bunch of Mylar as part of Flash:Light organized by Nuit Blanche New york. Our installation will hang in the entrance to the courtyard of 233 Mott Street. We also produced a piece for projection onto the New Museum facade along with a number of artists including our friends over at Acconci Studio and Terraform One. The projections will start Saturday night May 7th at 8pm. We can’t wait to see the museum breath, melt, get taped, grown, covered in hair and pretty much get transformed into an eight story hot box!

We are also working with Nuit Blanche and the New Museum on a fold up New Museum that features the projection of various artists. If all goes well these will be available on site this weekend. Hope to see you all there… will be a lot of fun!
