Featuring an original score by Will Bates, “the directorial debut from Daniel Ragussis eschews comfortable remove in favor of decidedly uncomfortable intimacy, quite literally placing his central hero (Daniel Radcliffe) and the audience deep within the social strata of a virulently racist white supremacist group rumored to be building a dirty bomb.” – Collider

We’re thrilled to once again be involved in Spring/Break Art Show, held this year at The Moynihan Station (that ginormous Post Office building across from Penn Station). The theme of this year’s show is Transaction. Our latest piece, Greed Is Good is based on Gordon Gecko’s speeches in Oliver Stone’s 1987 film Wall Street. Having become quite skilled with bottle-art, we took a little inspiration from our New Year’s Eve Cuervosel piece. Greed Is Good is an immersive audio/visual wizard of oz-like spectacle of flying Champagne bottles, a giant sphere, original FOYS score and video. All better to experience than to be explained.
The show will be open daily 12pm-8pm until March 8th.
