Even in Manhattan—a sea of skyscrapers—the Empire State Building towers over its neighbours. Since its completion in 1931 it has been one of the most iconic architectural landmarks in the United States, standing as the tallest structure in the world until the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were constructed in Downtown Manhattan four decades later. Its construction in the early years of the Great Depression, employing thousands of workers and requiring vast material resources, was driven by more than commercial interest: the Empire State Building was to be a monument to the audacity of the United States of America, “a land which reached for the sky with its feet on the ground.”[1]

Jenny Sabin Studio at House of Peroni

8 hours 53 minutes ago
Last night I attended the opening of LUSTER, an installation designed by Jenny Sabin Studio and curated by Art Production Fund for House of Peroni. LUSTER transformed the top floor at 463 West Street (part of Westbeth Artist Housing - PDF link) into a pop-up bar for a few days, after which the piece will travel to LA, Miami, and DC this fall. Before the party got going Jenny Sabin spoke with Christoph a. Kumpusch about the installation and the work of her studio based in Ithaca.

LUSTER

Sabin's work came to my attention, like most people I'm guessing, when she won the MoMA PS1 YAP last year with Lumen, a lightweight canopy of digitally knitted, robotically woven, photo-luminescent, solar-active yarns. Unfortunately, I only saw Lumen during the day, not at night when it glowed in various colors. Thankfully, last night's discussion took place just after sunset, when LUSTER's color-changing lighting kicked in, distracting me from whatever Sabin and Kumpusch were saying. See the roughly one-hour color-transformation in the slideshow below.

Cross-Stitch Murals Bring a Traditionally Domestic Craft Out Into the World

11 hours 23 minutes ago
[ By SA Rogers in Art & Street Art & Graffiti. ]

Often viewed as the domain of women within the home, the art of cross-stitch embroidery escapes its boundaries and finds a new footing within the modern world in works by Aheneah, also known as Ana Martins. The 22-year-old Portuguese artist and graphic embroiderer fell in love with textiles while working on her bachelor’s degree in graphic design, and now she works to “deconstruct, decontextualize and transform a traditional technique into a modern graphic, connecting cultures and generations.”
