Intersection creates temporary, large scale, public urban experiences that aim to finely attune New Yorkers to the distinctions between their city's social and urban territories.
Our projects observe the relationship between urban territories; communities that inhabit them and how this relates to the use of its public space, in particular its sidewalks and street corners. Intersection questions whether the social identities of different neighborhoods occur before the spatial definition of their territories. Do communities inhabit urban territories pre-defined by boundaries that are of topographical or infrastructural in nature, or is it an overlapping combination of both? What happens when the geographical distance between different urban territories is collapsed and a new virtual urban space is created?
