In "Moss Me," Tomaz Hipólito presents participants with a recipe for a green intervention amidst Manhattan's dense urban landscape. Drawing from Hipólito' background in architecture and current practice in visual art, the group will identify and evaluate abandoned objects to paint and use a homemade mixture of moss and yogurt to coat the objects. Individually and in groups, participants will paint these objects, re-engaging the street's detritus.
This walk can accomodate 8 people and is presented in partnership with Residency Unlimited and Le Petit Versailles (a program of Allied Productions, Inc). For more information visit www.elastic-city.org.
Elastic City intends to make its audience active participants in an ongoing poetic exchange with the places we live in and visit. Artists are commissioned by Elastic City to create their own walks. These walks tend to focus less on providing factual information and more on heightening our awareness, exploring our senses and making new group rituals in dialogue with public space.
