Friend and collaborator Daniel Eizirik is working on documenting public vacant lots with 596 Acres this winter, in conjunction with the exhibition “On Purpose” at the BRIC Rotunda gallery (33 Clinton Street, Brooklyn Heights). The drawings are created through shared experiences on location. The locations for this documentary are publicly owned vacant lots – those that have been transformed and those that remain sites of future transformations.
Until December 21, Daniel will be drawing and working as a facilitator of drawings by collaborators including neighbors and vacant lot organizers (this could be you!). If you wish to collaborate and participate in these immersions, contact Daniel directly (firstname.lastname@example.org or 516 943 3667). He would love to come out and meet you in your neighborhood or to attend any events you are having locally. & feel free to forward this and re-post the images (credit Daniel Eizirik).
In January, we will be putting these images together into an artist book that you can keep (SAVE THE DATE: Lots of Land/Land of Lots release will be on January, 11, 2013).
