Barbizon & Rosco Supply Gel for NYC's 85th Annual Feast Of San Gennaro North Gate Xtra Moenia Art Installation

If you are in the NYC and have a chance to wander down to Mulberry St. between Houston and Prince St. to the Annual Feast of San Gennaro check out this amazing art installation that uses a whole lot of ROSCO gel.
The pieces were cut by laser and then joined together with rivets.  Early in the morning the sun hits the structure and with the breeze blowing it creates shifting patterns and colors on the pavement below.
SoftLAB collaborated with members of The They Co. who currated, organized, and permitted, and all around made the piece possible. The geometry was engineered with Matt Clark at ARUP and all of the building connections were designed by Nathaniel Stanton of CRAFT Engineering.
The piece was produced by Two Bridges and supported by St.Patrick’s Old Cathedral.
The piece will be up until September 25th, 2011 so if you are downtown we hope you get a chance to check out the festival, play a little bocce ball, and let us know what you think about the installation!
Below is a video of it going up from SoftLAB's site.
