This residency was focused on the site of Pier 42, in the Lower East Side. A team of artists explored the notion of Embodied Mapping, using multi-disciplinary scores, practices, prompts and exercises. This mapping process was personal and experiential, allowing a questioning of existing ideas about how we relate to our surroundings –whether physically, temporally, intellectually, emotionally, personally, socially or politically.
