Here’s another in-progress photo montage that express the possible spaces exploration spanning between the early times of Brooklyn Bridge and current condition that involve three different levels of use of spaces; water (perpendicular elements; the east river, under the bridge), air (vertical elements of piers, cable suspenders), and the solid walking ground (horizontal elements of main cables and vehicles tracks). I think it’s best to express this in drawings but I haven’t done a proper drawing/diagrams explaining this. But I did a photo montage just to get some ideas across conceptually.
And I’m on the way of re-editing the photo montage I showed last Tuesday before NY.
Here’s the answers to Toby’s Questions.
I’ve recently found photos of New York in older days around 1880s that show wire cables all over New York which created this chaotic but somehow in order of the cables system, part of the scenery that connect the poles and houses. For people back then, it may seems crowded or an unpleasant view of New York. But somehow it is interesting how the innovations of exposing cables in older days and now we have most of them hidden or covered, not seen from the skyline. It triggers something in mind but I still not quite if it’s relevant to my museum at the moment. Still need to do more research on that.
