Codex Dynamic

Curated by: Leo Kuelbs + John Ensor Parker
Presented during the Dumbo Arts Festival; September 28, 29 & 30


“Codex Dynamic” is a publicly presented video projection exhibition, taking place during the 2012 Dumbo Arts Festival. Comprised of an international cast of artists and covering 33,000+ sq. ft. (3,065 sq. meters) of the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage, Archway and the adjacent cityscape, the exhibition will employ the latest in video mapping technologies.

Curated by Leo Kuelbs and John Ensor Parker, “Codex Dynamic” considers man’s evolving relationship with time and space. The roots of which, are based on our interactions with the natural world, from developing ancient calendars based on cycles of the sun and moon, to Quantum Mechanical theories and observations.

Two artists’ collectives will create 3D video-mapped works covering the surface of the Manhattan Bridge’s East Anchorage elevation and the interior of the Archway. The majority of the single-channel works will appear within the Archway, while “Isolation Tank” by Gary Hill will be seen on an adjacent architectural surface at Water St. & Jay St.
