"system:system": 21 Monitor Street
Pardon the iphone quality images, click on them to check out more detail...
Here is some info from the curators Adam Henry and Christina Vassallo of Super Square:
- Opening reception: Friday, Oct 23, 7 pm – 10 pm
- Hours: Friday Oct 23, 7 pm – 10 pm / Saturday & Sunday Oct 24 – 25, noon – 6 pm
week of Oct 26-30 by appointment. Saturday Oct 31 and Nov 1 noon-6 pm.
- Location: St. Cecilia’s Convent, 21 Monitor Street, Brooklyn, NY
A failing economy has decided the recent fate of 21 Monitor Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Formerly a nun’s convent, the grand three-story house now stands uninhabited due to the declining membership of St. Cecilia parish. Rather than let the building fall into disrepair the parish has found ways to breathe new life into it through a rotating schedule of film shoots, screenings, dance performances, and art exhibitions.
Taking its cue from the friends-of-friends network that has allowed access to 21 Monitor Street, system:system is a three-day event that reflects on the nature of associations between parts of a whole. The title is a play on the term “complex systems,” which are characterized by their connections and tendencies toward unpredictable behavior. The organizing of this event evokes these qualities and embraces the small world phenomenon of strangers being linked through minimal degrees of separation to form a dynamic structure.
The unoccupied nun’s living quarters will now showcase work that experiments with the building up and/or breaking down of systems: mathematical, scientific, social, perceptual, economic, and otherwise. Much like the social and economic factors responsible for this event, the behavior between the separate elements—artistic interventions and performances—will result in an atmosphere of emergent interconnectedness. The act of creating artistic content in a temporary context will feature prominently, remaining true to the fluid way in which these works were executed.

Recession or not, it is so nice to see so much confident, contemporary work in one place.
Relevant, coherent and aware of its surroundings... I really liked the dollar bill & fireplace installation .... there is something oddly "internet" about it.
Anyhow, I hope this venue continues... it would be such an awesome permanent addition to the local art scene. Congratulations!

How cool is this, I can't wait to order a bottle and check it out. I'll keep you posted!
"8-Bit Vintners is the creative love child of Mike James. His passion for wine and love of gaming has come together to create the coolest mash-up since The Flintstones met The Jetsons. All fruit comes from high-end vineyards within Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Valley AVA's. It is produced with the highest winemaking standards in Walla Walla, WA and aged in a selection of fine cooperage.
My wine is for anyone who spent time trying to save a princess or fit odd shaped blocks together. We may have never met, but we have more in common than we ever knew. So blow out that old Contra cartridge, give the NES a good dust off, and pour yourself a glass"
The inaugural vintage of Player 1 displays the quality and diversity of fruit that is being produced in Eastern Washington. Player 1 is blended from various vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley, Wahluke Slope, and Walla Walla Valley. 2007 was a moderately warm growing season with long, dry, sunny days that allowed for extended hang time during harvest. This wine shows an accessible and approachable style that is both fun to drink now and has the acidity and tannins to hold up for 5 years plus.
Appellation: Walla Walla Valley, Wahluke Slope, and Columbia Valley
Blend: 50% Syrah, 30% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Carmenere, 5% Malbec
Harvest Date: August and September 2007
Bottling Date: July 2009
Cooperage: French, American, and Hungarian for 18 to 22 months
Labels: 8 BIT
