Closing Party and Woodstock Film Festival

Visual Arts Center in New Jersey
Closing party on September 23rd

Next Stop Atlantic is a photographic series by Stephen Mallon documenting the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority’s recycling program that builds artificial underwater reefs from old subway cars.  Taken over the course of three years along the Eastern seaboard from Delaware to South Carolina,
these photographs track the final passage of hundreds of decommissioned subways cars as they make their way to their last stop: the Atlantic Ocean. The photographs dramatically capture the moments before, during, and after these subway cars are dropped into the sea to spend their “retirement” as a new home for undersea life.

Next Stop Atlantic closes on September 25th
Curated by Mary Birmingman

Using stop motion filming, over 30,000 still photographs were compiled into an animation that recorded the journey of the new Willis Avenue Bridge in New York City. At 4,8000,000 pounds and 350 feet long, it was floated, dragged, pushed and pulled through over 100 miles of waterways and under iconic bridges as it made its way into the city. Assembled just south of Albany, the bridge was filmed from over twenty locations both from afar and on the bridge itself, as it traveled in the current of the East River before reaching its home at 125th Street over the Harlem River.

See you there!
