Manuals for Public Space

With local activists and members of Greenpoint communities, the artist creates a speculative model of what could become of its ecologically damaged areas if we could remake Greenpoint into absolutely anything we wish it to be. This imaginary reshaping would take form of a game. During this game, the group will use specially designed map and cognitive objects that will lead to creation of an alternative architectural models of this for this area with specific focus on public spaces, mitigation of the ecological damage, and gentrification. In a form of a user manual, the artist will offer speculations on how these models could happen.
