About the Team: From art to start-ups, behavioral economics to medical device design, our team is brought together by the study and practice of critical thinking: questioning possibilities, normativity, asking for the indefinite, a note of revolt, or at least a largeness of hope
Project Description: Affixed beneath one of Rochester’s skyways, the Artery will reflect the changing health of the city as the installation’s colors transition to signify health events happing within the walls of the city’s health care institutions. A childbirth. A successful heart transplant. A final radiation treatment. At Place Makers, rails of light will blur the lines between art and collective experience.
Uniqueness: Unlike any existing structure in the cityscape, this installation will ask if a city’s architecture, coupled with new artist vision, can offer innovative ways to deliver health. The Artery will be an intersection for the static nature of information and the seemingly impossible but necessary tasks of art: to be arresting, rare, difficult, and alive
