Culture Lounge
Staten Island Ferry Terminal


12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Passenger and Vessel

What is the relationship between passenger and vessel? How does this affect the way we travel? This piece addresses these questions by re-imagining the gallery itself as a vessel.

Journeys are fractal in nature; that is, they have a similar structure at multiple scales. For example, simultaneously while the ferry carries visitors to St. George Terminal, the ship is also a passenger of the sea, spinning on a globe which voyages through the solar system. It follows that each of us are also both vessels and passengers. In addition to human traffic, there are plants, animals, ocean currents and even sounds traveling on their own private missions through New York Harbor.

This duel-natured, interactive installation explores this recursive relationship, and its significance in how we process our journeys.

To You, From Us

Juliane Leigh Forsyth's "To You, From Us" exhibit will be presented by the Staten Island LGBT Community Center this September. 

Forsyth writes: 
"To You, From Us" would be the perfect fit in relation to my word art, "To you" meaning I’m presenting the viewer with something, like I’m inviting you into my world and "From Us" meaning that I feel the words I use in my art are things people can really feel and interpret when they look at them, so in a sense it's from "us" aka the viewer and the artist (myself).
