Centroids and asphalt

Neil Freeman, 2010
participatory walk
variable duration

An art walk given in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The walk visits hidden loci of New York City - invisible hinge-points upon which the city's people, buildings and population turn. Centroids and Asphalt explores our physical interactions with the street and how to reconcile these encounters with a conceptual, bird's-eye view of the city. Participants physically map both their perceptions and realities at different points and use drawing, map-making, and careful study to form new narratives from our everyday environment.

Centroids and Asphalt was commissioned by Elastic City as part of the 2010 season of artist-led walks.
