Quercus/Homo 1 is a two-part, site specific interactive installation that encourages conversation about the history of Governors Island, and tangibly explores how humans and nonhumans co-exist and co-shape our world.
The neon sign is comprised of three separate lights. The section that lights up with the least amount of pressure forms the shape of the original island. The second section makes the shape of the current, 172-acre island. The third section, requiring the most pressure to illuminate, activates the shape of the future land bridge proposal, LoLo.
