NYC's privately owned public spaces

The Village Voice's list of privately owned public spaces in the city is packed with adjectives like "claustrophobic", "snooty", "sterile", "corporate" and "drab." Do you agree? Know of any they missed?

G.P.S. Drawing

G.P.S. Drawing, one of the projects presented at Glowlab's 2003 Psy.Geo.Conflux, makes the New York Times:

"Now come Jeremy Wood and Hugh Pryor, a young British duo who use the Global Positioning System's network of 24 satellites, which can track a person's location on the planet to within a few yards, to produce virtual art on the Internet."

Glowlab Winter Rendezvous invites you...

location: Williamsburg, Brooklyn
date: Thursday, December 18, 2003
time: 8pm - late

We want to see you. Really we do. But handing over the map to our party is too easy, so boring. Instead, on your behalf, we have called upon several skilled agents who will guide you there.

Plan to arrive at the L train Bedford Avenue station between 8 and 9pm. You will meet your first agent near the ticket window inside. Bring a snapshot [of yourself, a friend, a lover, a stranger] to exchange for further instructions. With a good eye and the help of our agents, it shouldn't take you longer than 15 minutes to find us.

Once you arrive, you'll find a warm and friendly gathering of artists, urban explorers, social architects, psychogeographers and maybe some other people we can't vouch for. The Glowlab crew -- Christina Ray, Dave Mandl, Holly Tavel, Sharilyn Neidhardt and others -- will be happy to see you and offer a toast to your psychogeographic skills.

The party is free and all are welcome; no rsvp necessary; there will be a cash bar. Agents will only be out on the street from 8 to 9pm; after that, the late or the lost should call voice mail #415.305.8940 for the spoiler [directions]. Questions? Ask: rendezvous [at] glowlab.com.

Can't wait to see you.

The Outlaw Series

"Inspired by New York's pre-Giuliani era Outlaw Parties, which were entirely illegal events taking place throughout the NY Metro area in the mid 1980s, this Guerilla-style exhibition features works that are placed, performed, installed or simply occurring in unorthodox settings."

Hey my Friend, What's the Matter?

"Hey my Friend, What's the Matter?" is a net piece by Pino Boresta. The project combines established art strategies, such as documentation of a past event (photo stills), performance (the actual act that was photographed), and user interactivity (visitors to the site being invited to contribute an opinion).
