At Aviation Pier on Pier 57, the future New York Superpier, there is an intervention with shipping containers from Spain hung from the ceiling like a magic carpet. The containers have motors so they can be raised and lowered. The different ways they can be transformed allows hundred of different types of events to be held here. A magic carpet of floating shipping containers forms a colourful ceiling, a grid of possible scenarios, a space that defies gravity with a single layer backdrop that resolves everything.
