Signs of Life

"Signs of Life" by Matthew Jensen

Each walk will start at the “Shorakapok Rock” that marks the mythical spot where Manhattan was sold to settlers by the Lenape tribe. From here, the walk will evolve into a meandering exploration of the 196-acre park and its dynamic history. Employing “techniques” of seeing and finding, participants will visually engage the landscape by looking for evidence of the park’s historical past and documenting clues of its current human inhabitants. The objects, artifacts and images collected by all the groups will be uniquely documented and made available online.

Participants are encouraged to bring a digital camera, a canvas shopping bag and to wear sturdy walking shoes.

This walk holds 16 people.
