When curator Laura Arena approached MIT’s Luis Blackaller & Andy Cavatorta, her brief was simple: create something that initiates interaction between the inhabitants of the neighborhood. From the Portuguese fisherman to the Projects, to the artists and hipsters, to a new influx of people, Lucky Gallery sits at the crux of several different communities, none of whom talk, but acknowledge each other as familiar strangers. Luis and Andy’s response was to build a miniature version of Red Hook and populate it with photographic doll versions of people they met and talked to on the street. We join Luis and Andy as they prepare for the opening and watch as the element of play in a virtual world impacts communication in the real one.

  • Thank you Radar, I really enjoyed your movie.

  • Nuria Bages Mtz.

    me encanto el proyecto, esta padrísimo!!!! creo que es una excelente idea para exportar. Ademas refuerza identidades y autoestimas no? tambien se podria hacer un museo con lo que la comunidad piense que vale la pena rescatar. Bueno, se me ocurre.

    FELICIDADES!!!!!!
