Mark Reigelman: Manifest Destiny!

Brooklyn-based artist Mark Reigelman, in collaboration with architect Jenny Chapman, have conceived 'manifest destiny!' The project is a temporary rustic cabin which has been affixed to the Hotel Des Arts, floating approximately 40 feet in the air above the restaurant Le Central. According to the artist:

The work stands as an anomalous-like outgrowth of the contemporary streetscape. The dwelling is meant to be an homage to the romantic spirit of the western myth and a commentary on the arrogance of westward expansion. Three curtained windows allow the interior space of the petite abode to be seen day and night, standing as a lonely beacon in the city's dense landscape.
