Critical Mass Interactive PavilionDistance: 0.7 miCompetitive Analysis 332 10th Ave New York, NY 10001
This interactive temporary pavilion will coincide with the opening of phase 2 of the High Line. This inflatable space will be activated by the presence of people and will provide ample video screening space.
This is where we need you:
Submit a short video (2 minutes) showing your face. During this video you can wear and say whatever you wish (and whatever you want the world to see). Just think of the video as an animated profile picture. After your video is approved you will receive a specific time for when your video will be screened live in front of thousands of people. This is your chance for your 15 minutes of fame in New York City!
