The Great Richmond

Staten Island Arts is pleased to present “The Great Richmond” a crowd-sourced public sculpture/interactive diagram that is a collaboration between cartographer and urban theorist Neil Greenberg and sculptor Will Corwin.
 
Corwin and Greenberg have collaborated on a monumental game-based installation that invites participants to re-imagine Staten Island, and their own particular environment, as they might want it to be: by turns a return to a semi-mythological sylvan and pastoral utopia, a much more built-up urban metropolis—a continuation of Manhattan and Jersey City across the harbor, or, on a controversial note, a seceded Staten, a new city in the constellation of the northeast corridor.
 
For The Great Richmond, Greenberg and Corwin researched the history of Staten Island, explored its many neighborhoods and invented a set of pieces and a human-scale “board” within which to organize the pieces.  The images that inspire the pieces include Henry David Thoreau (an inhabitant of S.I.), the island's world-famous reptile house, Bathtub Madonnas, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, and The Staten Island Mall.  Though not with a focus on winning or losing, the guidelines for activating the sculpture are geared to creating an accumulation of images and objects that acts both as a sculpture and a data set that can be plumbed for conclusions about the islands inhabitants and its visitors.

MISDIRECTION - Public Exhibition by 'Make Your Future' Artist-in-Residence Marina Roselli

Marina Roselli spent the last six months at the SI MakerSpace as a Make Your Future artists-in-residents. During her residency, Marina has been exploring the connections in our minds between what we smell and what we see. Scents have the power to evoke powerful memories, and when combined with images and visual shapes, they often make us think about the world in different ways.

Come join this free exhibition to see and smell the body of work that she has created.
