New Museum to Get Projection-Mapped

I wish I could be there….

Artist Mia Pearlman (pictured above) — along with Vito Acconci, photographer Marilyn Minter, and with help from SOFTlab — will be featured in a performance played out on the façade of the New Museum on Saturday, May 7.

Let Us Make Cake is a collaborative projection directed by Nuit Blanche New York and Light Harvest Studios. Dozens of artists were asked to interact with scale models of the New Museum ranging in size from 11 inches to 11 feet, embracing the museum as both a canvas and vessel. The resulting footage will be projection-mapped onto the New Museum, marking the first time projection has been used to animate the entire 174-foot facade.
