Eyebeam Calls for Participation in High Line Art Project

Eyebeam, an arts organization in Chelsea, is teaming with Helsinki-based artist Liisa Roberts to create a series of very short films based on individuals' experiences and visions of the High Line. Roberts writes:

"For many, the elevated West Side rail line has been a secret garden among New York City's bustling street life and this undocumented aspect of its history can be saved alongside its future life as a public park. This project will attempt to archive the unique personal significance the High Line represents for many community residents."

Roberts and Eyebeam are looking for participants who are interested in contributing stories, developing them into storyboards and working on visualization at Eyebeam's production studios. For more information, e-mail liisarob@gmail.com or call Masha at (646) 201-3843.
