General Slocum Memorial

Lab:  City Cultures - Spring Semester
The General Slocum Disaster was considered the largest tragedy in New York City until September 11th.  On June 15th, 1904, 1,342 people boarded the steamboat for their annual church picnic.  The ship began to sail up the East River toward Long Island, and suddenly a fire erupted, resulting in the deaths of 1,021 passengers, many of whom were women and children.  This work was created as a memorial to the victims of the tragic event.  Cut-paper figures rest peacefully on a wooden abstraction of the ship.  The victims’ names and ages appear around the perimeter of the piece.

For the experiment of placing something in a public space, I decided to focus on an art-based project. I created five small geometric sculptures using plaster and placed in them in different locations around Greenwich Village. The project is meant to support the notion of being observant and…

The money I see on the street

I documented the use of money through the shopping bags that I saw people carrying on the street.  I walked along 5th Avenue from 13th Street to 23rd Street twice, and recorded each of the bags that I saw.  In total, I recorded 80 bags, which represented 39 stores.  

I created the design above to visually depict the study.  The prevalence of each shopping bag is represented by the size of the text.  The bags that were seen only once are the smallest, while the bags that appeared most frequently (including Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Barnes, & Noble, Banana Republic, Barney’s, Gap, Home Depot, Macy’s, Paragon Sports, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Williams-Sonoma, and the most prevalent, H & M) are shown in a larger text size.
