Catskills Art Trip: Prologue

May 13, 2014 | ANIMAL

A little while ago, ANIMAL took a trip to the Catskills and took over a motel transforming four of the rooms into non-traditional pop-up art experiences in a series of videos for Lincoln Now! We took graffiti writer Faust, transmedia artist Carla Gannis and artist Shantell Martin collaborating with violinist Sarah Fylak and a crew of music hackers away from the city and into a mountain town of Phoenicia. We started with three motel rooms and ended up with a literature-infused mural, an interactive superheroine-themed digital installation and a collaborative experience of Mozart live-remixed by drawing.

Check out the project on Lincoln and keep an eye out for more ANIMAL’s Catskills Art Trip videos to come. (Video: Aymann Ismail/ANIMALNewYork)
