Eyebeam Art and Technology Center New York, NY
in collaboration with Fluxxlab
Fluxxlab was asked to present the Revolution Door prototype during this show as well as design the general exhibition space which included works from such influential artists as Natalie Jeremijenko, Rebecca Bray and Britta Riley.
The scheme employs a grand “green” central to the exhibition where events and gatherings took place, with exhibiting artists on the periphery. The green was an artificial turf field, where visitors were shown that reused turf can be more sustainable than grass in terms of maintenance and usability. Hand crank flashlights were given to visitors to cut energy consumption for exhibition lighting, and provide a fun way in which people could interact with the space and understand their energy use. Fluxxlab also designed and fabricated the signage for a preview exhibition that reuses old street signage as new exhibition signage.
