REMOTE SENSING (La Part Maudite on 14th) is, on one level, an experiment in resolving a "site-specific" project from far away with zero means (from the esteemed and prestigious University of California, San Diego), probing the interstice between physical and virtual realms. Concurrently, LPM14 has no presence in NYC on 14th save for its mention on AiOP's map , and the presence that is brought by its viewers: you will be able to log onto the site from your portable device while the presence of the building in question (the Zeckendorf Towers, on the northeast corner of 4th and 14th), or, holding its image in your memory, from wherever you log onto the internet, once returned. As our intention for the project is to produce a simple architecture for real-time locative analysis of urban/ecological flows that are otherwise not explicit, it will be a kind of perpetual work in progress, with a beta version launching on October 1, 2009, and new features in development thereafter. A blog of the work-in-progress can be visited at the link below. Should you have any questions, dismissals or cryptic babblings, we are intrigued! As we will regretfully not be present during the program, we thank you for your active consideration.
