Today the New York Times released an infographic and video showing the ethnic and financial history of the  marathon route. While it is an interesting and informative video it doesn’t seem appropriate or necessary. Why visualize these two things? Something way more interesting could have been shown with the history of the route or it should have gone further showing more categories such as crime, levels of happiness, divorce rates, methods of commuting, political affiliations, and love of Bon Jovi to name a few. Show something that can create a NEW way of looking at the land not reinforce what is already known.

Figment June 10-12 Governors Island NYC

I am showing Ice Cream Island this year at FIGMENT Festival. If you are in the city and want to create the world’s largest ice cream cone drawing come participate.  Figment should be a lot of fun this year so there is more than enough reasons to come! Note: Ice Cream Island will be operating 10a-4p on Saturday and Sunday. To participate in Ice Cream Island you need an iPhone or Android smartphone if you don’t have one still stop by and see what others have created!
