TRYST (Clarinda Mac Low, Paul Benney, and Carolyn Hall)
Join TRYST (Clarinda Mac Low, Paul Benney, and Carolyn Hall) for a roving future history of lower Manhattan. Walk through an imagined tomorrow and discuss how the city landscape will change over the coming years.
Sea levels are rising, and New York City is surrounded by a series of complex waterways. The borders of Manhattan island have been expanded through landfill and soil scavenged from construction, covering over creeks and streams. Marshes have been drained and filled and formed into streets.
During Superstorm Sandy, the highest flood tide came up to the level of the pre-contact island, a premonition of what is to come. When the water rises again, what will the tip of Manhattan become? Venice in Battery Park? A series of creeks all through the Financial District?
Embody and invent the new watery reality through observation, physical adventure, and a series of pop-up interactive shared imaginings of a future existence.
