06-05-2018 12:00:00 17-06-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Treatment: The Plan for Rain | 5:00 PM Treatment: The Plan for Rain is a project by Nicholas O'Brien that rethinks the NYC Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) stormwater collection program by focusing on soil biodiversity, transparency, maintenance, and its impact on citizens. Through a series of animations and sculptures, artist Nicholas O'Brien questions how the DEP's plan employs System Engineering principles that often ignore the human element in undertaking large-scale urban infrastructure projects. The animations in the exhibition render components from the stormwater collection systems, and are overlaid with segments of audio from interviews with various experts as well as DEP officials. The exhibition attempts to shed light on the often opaque decision making that occurs when trying to reshape the city into a more environmentally conscientious place. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=295205 Knockdown Center Knockdown Center
