N.Y. and N.O.

27Aug07

Artists Catherine Colman and Angela Pablo are commemorating the flooding of New Orleans two years ago with a project in Williamsburg that seeks to draw attention to the similarities between neighborhoods in NY and NO.

They will be giving a walking tour and traveling around Williamsburg, affixing FEMA-like stickers that designate areas of the Brooklyn hood which are vulnerable to flooding.

FEMA-style sticker to be used by artists Colman and Pablo.

For the Conflux 2007 festival, which I mentioned in a previous post, they will:

“conduct a walking tour, where participants would walk down the street, call in to our phone system, enter in their cross-street location and receive information about what the location would look like had there been a flood in the area.”
