Project Information

"The Perfect Equilibrium of Nature" was created in partnership with Tillary Park Foundation, Councilmember Letitia James, and The Urban Assembly School of Music and Art. The goal of the project was to illustrate modern life in developing Brooklyn communities. It was a concept shaped from research about the nineteenth century immigrant laborers that built the Brooklyn Bridge, which then led to discussions about the similarities to life in Brooklyn today. Participants based the murals theme on private moments and the surroundings that residents in Brooklyn experience daily. These private snapshots allow for the environment to play a far greater role in revealing the pulse of contemporary Brooklyn life. There are also hints to immigrant populations and the gentrification process.
