The project was part of their summer warm up concert series, an initiative organized by curatorial assistant Jocelyn Miller. We were inspired by suburban nostalgia and advertising iconography to create a kinetic installation that highlights the individual’s role in the collective environment. We installed groups of Air Dancers, commonly seen on used car lots and suburban strip malls, on the roof and behind the stage of MoMA PS1. As the crowd pulsed and swayed, the Air Dancers pulsed and swayed back, highlighting the ability for generative movement and the crowds potential to evolve into an emergent form of architecture unique to the environment, event and moment itself.
