Interpretations of the End - Art Installation

8:10 PM / Posted by Ashley /

I'm creating a performance art/visual/photography installation for The Hemispheric Institutes's EmergeNYC commission that will be held this October in New York City. I'm developing this piece around interviews/literature that I've received from hundreds of people regarding beliefs in the "end of time"/"end of the world"/"doomsday"/"Apocalypse"/"rapture" and I'm collecting drawings/doodles/sketches/painting/collages etc. (anything you can think of... be as creative as you would like) from anonymous sources and individuals around the country of how you think the world will meet its end (If, indeed, you do believe that there is an end). Will humans destroy themselves through nuclear war and/or global warming? Do you think there will be a final battle between aliens and humans? Will God come back to earth? Will there be no "end"?

Whatever you believe, put it on paper and send to:

Interpretations of the End Art Project
375 Kirby Avenue
Elberon, NJ, 07740

Your work will be featured in my upcoming performance art piece beginning in October 2008 and in any other manifestations that this project takes.

I will also be spending some time in Union Square and Washington Square Park on the following days, collecting drawings from anyone who stops by. I'll have paper, markers, crayons and art supplies available but feel free to also bring your own if you prefer anything specific:

Saturday, July 19th from 1:00pm - 4:00 pm in Washington Square Park. (Under the Garibaldi Statue)
Sunday, July 20th from 1:00 - 4:00 in Washington Square Park. (Under the Garibaldi Statue) Friday, July 25th from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm in Union Square Park. (Under the Gandhi Statue.... Southwest Side)

*** If you are planning on sending submissions through the mail, please keep them to 11x14 size and smaller.

To be put on this project's mailing list e-mail arm391@nyu.edu .
