My friend Peter from Art Comments shot me over the info for this multimedia film series showing at the Tribeca Grand this weekend. This 3-part film series is part of New Yorks annual Armory show. Featuring themes based on design masters Charles & Ray Eames and concepts incorporating mixed media and soundscapes, these features are sure to become a catalyst for creativity in environmental design. The details

A New Stance for Tomorrow – Part 2 Wildflowers of Manitoba mixed-media performative installation
The second major piece, hosted in The Tribeca Grand’s Sanctum, comprises an arresting mixed media work that incorporates film, performance and a domed installation by Noam Gonick and Luis Jacob. Wildflowers of Manitoba is both a utopian vision of an idealistic world and a model or vision of how things to come could be.
Wildflowers of Manitoba in the Sanctum at the Tribeca Grand Hotel:
Daily performances: Wed 4th March – Sun 8th March | 4pm – 10pm

A New Stance for Tomorrow – Part 3 Soundscape and installation at VOLTA NY 7W
A New Stance for Tomorrow continues in the elevators at 7W – the site of VOLTA NY with a series of artists’ soundscapes and audio projects, including with Byron Broadbent’s Cine-Pod – a solar-powered cinema made from ‘smart glass’ – a switchable material that transforms from translucent to opaque with the start and end of a screening.
