the event of a thread

From 2011 to 2012, Futurist Lab worked with artist Ann Hamilton on her installation, the event of a thread, for the Park Avenue Armory.

The main focus of our collaboration was designing, prototyping, and finished assembly of her “paper bag radios.” These radios were used in the installation by participants and received a local FM station created specifically for Ann Hamilton’s installation.

The work won the U.S. chapter of the International Association of Art Critics award for “Best Project in a Public Space” in 2013.
