Did you ever imagine that Brooklyn's iconic Kentile sign would light up the Gowanus sky again? I sure didn't. But last night Tim Bartlett, George Del Barrio, and Karl Mehrer made it happen:
"Inactive since 1992, this 7-story canvas will be illuminated by a pair of Digital Projection DPI Titan Super Quad 20K projectors. A looping series of site-specific videos/animatics will be presented from sunset onwards. The program is estimated at 30 minutes in length, and will contain works by Ralph Ellison, Milan Kundera, Gabriel García Márquez & Henry David Thoreau."
Some more details are on Tim Bartlett's page:
Also, some photos of it are up on my website: barryyanowitz.com/photostream/2014/5/4/kentilelet-there-be-light.
