BROOKLYN MAKES is a site-specific video installation in the Williamsburg Greenpoint Industrial Zone, revealing the work of manufacturers in North Brooklyn today.
Video projections by Sarah Nelson Wright will light up the industrial facades of three manufacturers, with evocative sound by Jennifer Stock. Captured inside each business, the videos and sounds bring North Brooklyn’s hidden labor onto the public streets.
Directions: Take the G to Nassau or L to Bedford Ave (also near the B61 and B48 buses). See the map below or pick up a map at Space on Dobbin, 50-52 Dobbin Street between Nassau & Norman Avenues in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
FAQ: Videos will loop at each location, and will play simultaneously throughout the night. In case of rain, start at Space on Dobbin. Please respect the few cars and residents in the area by staying on the sidewalks and keeping your voice down outside residential buildings.
