Art Fag City’s pitting (overrated light artist) James Turrel vs. Alice Aycock in a devestating expose of public sculptures in New York (catalogued via google maps). It’s part of the Let’s Meet In Real Life series that we mentioned a few weeks back with regard to SD Idea Man Jesse Aaron Cohen.
And look, they’re making a zine!
In keeping with the intent of the show â€” to reveal the behind the scenes operations of online work through the use of public physical space â€” we intend to use the gallery itself in the same way we employ the Internet: as a method of distribution. As such, the last two hours of the residency will be dedicated to printing out the findings and compiling them as a homemade limited edition zine. This will include individual works found on Google maps, a map locating all sculptures, and a lot of low resolution pictures.
In other google map projects, today we discovered SeeClickFix, which maps civic problems to be reported (by volunteer “fixers”) to 311.
