|Work : Fulton Fence (2007)
The Fulton Fence is a hybrid art installation on a construction site in New York City.
It consists of two components: an outdoor installation and a website. The installation transformed 120 meters of fencing around a construction site at Fulton Street & Broadway into a kinetic street sculpture.
Signs with a URL and a 2D barcode connected pedestrians with the mobile website which mirrored the intervention online. This experience explored the idea of 'site' as generator and aggregator of information.
By re-mixing local information, news, urban history, web 2.0 widgets and mash-ups the project merges the physical space into the web and vice-versa.
The project was completed in November 2007 as a comission from the Downtown Alliance and the LMCC to improve the visual chaos created by construction sites in lower Manhattan.
