Gretchen Bennett and Yann Novak are proud to present there ongoing collaborative installation piece The East River Project. The Installation combines online downloads and direct street encounters to activate the public space of the neighborhood they inhabit, The International District. The web site is a base camp for the street installation, where you’ll find a downloadable map with the perimeters of the installation and a downloadable MP3, as well as instructions on its use. The order in which the walk should be experienced is completely open, so each view of the work is unique, to preserve the element of discovery.
To celebrate the launch of this exciting project Bennett and Novak have created a hand made and signed CD / Decal set in an edition of 25 and released on Novak’s own Dragon’s Eye Recordings. The CD contains a new score by Yann Novak produced entirely from Bennett’s field recordings of Brooklyn. The CD is packaged with a white decal for the consumer to place in their environment to further blur the boundaries of the installation.
