WHERE: Shinbone Alley archway entrance near Parking Lot P3 at Snug Harbor

This video installation is part of a lead up to the culminating work in the 36.5 series, 36.5 / New York Estuary, which will take place from 7:27am-8:06pm on September 14 in Queens, with participation from 36.5 global sites including Bangladesh, Brazil, Kenya, the Netherlands, and Aotearoa-New Zealand. Staten Island residents are invited to watch the performance livestreamed at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art at Snug Harbor.
