This event has ended.

World Wide Storefront is a multi-locus project of ten alternative spaces around the globe and a digital platform designed by Pentagram interwoven with a commissioned installation, Situation NY, designed collaboratively by artist Jana Winderen and architect Marc Fornes.

For World Wide Storefront (#WWSf), ten projects launch simultaneously around the globe, which include a series of programs, performances, activities and events at project sites. The projects, selected for their ability to produce alternative platforms within their local contexts, range from transoceanic traveling artist residency spaces, to urban interventions in foreclosed ancient structures, to the construction and inhabitation of residual spaces and structures in the city.

A commissioned installation in the gallery, Situation NY, designed collaboratively by artist Jana Winderen and architect Marc Fornes reflects on the contemporary condition between the digital and the physical. The installation collapses sound, light and form in an object with intrinsic sensorial behaviors, inviting the visitors to question the properties of matter and the built environment surrounding us. The installation is a vibrating sound experiment that aims to transform the architecture into animated sensible form. Conceived as a sound object that absorbs and contrasts the site specificity of the Storefront Gallery with abstract spatial, formal and acoustic variations and compositions, Situation NY raises questions about context, sensorial readings, estrangement and the uncanny.
