Garson Yu Projects Sights and Sounds of New York at Pier 57

By Kyndra Teal

May 31, 2013

Last night, art and food enthusiasts alike gathered to celebrate the opening of Garson Yu’s graphic art installation The Interactive New York (T.I.N.Y.). The video work was perfectly meshed with an existing shipping container installation and was viewed with a special performance by DJ Spooky. Song, sound, and images of New York worked together to create the multi-sensory experience, inspired by New York as a living organism.

Host’s Young Woo & Associates transformed The Marina at Pier 57 into this interactive, multimedia public art space, which had the vibe of a tiny, yet busy neighborhood. And what New York neighborhood would be complete without a few notable guests? Among us were Daniel Stark, Natalie Trainor, and Manish Vora.

We began our tour of the neighborhood riding in on the subway. Shipping containers were lined up end-to-end representing that of cars on a subway train. Outside our car were projections of Yu’s images of everyday life in the city.

We then made our way toward the river, stumbling upon an array of boutiques, restaurants, and artists. One of our favorite stops was Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbeque, serving up hot and juicy pulled pork sliders, which quickly disappeared from our fingertips.

As our night came to a close and the sights and sounds slowly began to fade, we were left with a newfound appreciation of the city and a lingering succulent taste.

The installation will be open to the public through June 16, daily from 9 A.M. to 7 P.M.
