As we head into the final week of preparations for this weekend’s Wooster on Spring exhibition, here’s a quick update…
1. The Wooster on Spring event on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be “B.Y.O.B.B”—Bring Your Own Boom Box. All of the sonic tags (live DJ’s and music) during the three days is being curated and produced by Soundlab. Using a wireless transmitter, all of the audio will be transmitted such that anyone with a boom box will be able to receive it. We’re counting on all of you to be our contantly evolving and roving speaker system as you attend the event. The event will start with no speakers and then build over the three days as more people come in. (More on this from Soundlab later in the week)
2. We’ve received a few emails asking us if we were planning on having a live webcam broadcasting the event live on the internet from 11 Spring so that people around the world can participate. We think that this is a terrific idea, but have no idea how to set this up by Friday. The building has a DSL line but no wireless access. If you live in New York, have access to the webcam and wireless modem, and want to install it in the space before Thursday night, let us know at email@example.com because we’d love to have it, we just don’t know how to do it ourselves.
3. If you’re a member of the press and are planning on covering the event and project, drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make any and all necessary arrangements. At this point we’re not planning on putting out any type of formal press release or event flyer as things will be changing and added right up to the last minute.
4. We’ve received lots of emails from people who will be flying in from all over the world to check out the exhibition and meet the artists. If you’re coming in from somewhere else, let us know as we may get people together for a beer or something who have flown in from far places.
5. There are a ton of amazing restaurants and shops in the neighborhood where 11 Spring is located in Soho. A few of places that have been especially gracious to us over the last few weeks, that we encourage you to check out while you are in the area, as the food is great are: Barmarche across the street from the building, Bread, a block or so away on Spring, and Cafe Gitane, around the corner on Mott. All are fantastic.
Again here are the days and times for the three day event on 11 Spring:
Friday, December 15th: From 11am to 5pm
Saturday, December 16th: From 11am to 5pm
Sunday, December 17th: From 11am to 5pm
After these three days the building will be closed to the public.
And finally, some quick snaps from yesterday
