NYU Faculty Splash Washington Square With Digital Graffiti

New, 16 comments

Faculty against the NYU-Sexton, which will subject the school's Washington Square neighborhood to a decades-long period of construction, recruited the A/V club from Occupy Wall Street to project a number of anti-plan messages on structures around the square. Occupy Wall Street's "Illuminator" van uses a high-powered projector to shine images on vertical spaces. It's like the bat signal crossed with PowerPoint. Last night's displays were coordinated by the NYU Faculty Against the Sexton Plan, which previously published a book criticizing the NYU 2031 plan as physically and culturally destructive to the Village and potentially financially ruinous to the university itself.
