    SculptureCenter is pleased to partner with Elastic City on this special series of walks in Long Island City, Superfun/d Speed Date by Ben Weber. Elastic City intends to make its audience active participants in an ongoing poetic exchange with the places we live in and visit. Artists are commissioned by Elastic City to create their own walks. These walks tend to focus less on providing factual information and more on heightening our awareness, exploring our senses and making new group rituals in dialogue with public space.

    Hi. My name is Ben. I'm a Capricorn and my spirit animal is a moose.

    They say this is the year when everything changes. The sun will flare, the poles will crumble, and the heart of the galaxy will align with the center of the Earth. As humans, we're the shepherds of this cosmic transition. Personally, I'd like to convene with the Mayan ancients as much as the next guy, but it's tough forging meaningful connections in the sweaty New York City summertime.

    Let me take you to a tangle of art & industry in LIC, where we'll prepare for this new cycle using techniques from applied theater. We'll peek into a poisoned creek and sculpt our bodies into the baggage we wish to leave behind as we enter the World of the 5th Sun from the world of the 7 train.

    These walks are limited to 8 people so be sure to sign up early. The group will meet at 46th Ave and Vernon Blvd in Long Island City, in front of LIC Bar. For more information and to join the walk please visit
