Urban life is completely disconnected from natural experience, and there is no true nighttime darkness in New York City. brings the experience of a serene field on a summer evening to Lower Manhattan. Although this remote country field at dusk is synthetically recreated, it is designed to evoke the sensations and feelings of the real thing, while always being obviously and unequivocally manufactured. The exhibition aims to get people to think about the meaning of the authenticity of experience in a technologically advancing world. Virtual reality does not necessarily involve wearing a headset. This is the first public artwork to be displayed in Peck Slip.

This exhibition is presented by the Old Seaport Alliance
