JUMP!!: PS1 & 5 POINTS NYC
Go on second edition of Jump!! You may remember from our first edition, the genesis of this project but if not, here’s a brief recap. My friend Nita sent me a brilliant web site devoted to jumping in art museums. After giggling at my desk, I hatched a jumping plan of my own. Hence, Jump!! Part 1: The MoMa edition.
The idea behind these pictures is to layer art on top of art: the background masterpieces overlaid with animated expressions of joy. Jump time.
PS 1, our first location, is located on Long Island City, a sneeze away from Manhattan. We set out to take pictures in front of Wack!: Art and the Feminist Revolution but ended up taking many pictures in the courtyard in front of different pieces of art including Concrete Waves by Ryan McGuiness. The picture below enveloped in darkness is from Olafur Eliasson’s just opened Take Your Time exhibit.
5 Points, our second location, is across the street from PS1 and covered in the most beautiful graffiti this jumper has ever seen.

Being a part of this new ADD generation, I liked this idea for its accessibility to me and as an extension my larger target demo. These pictures and the process helped us to interact with the art and experience it in ways previously unimaginable.
Enough of the writing. . . More jumping.
