Product Description
BK-07: "Bidirectional Core Sample" by AGENCY—AGENCY

Bidirectional Core Sample excavates past strata of bedrock, toxic sludge, and human infill, and projects physical layers into the future. Marking a turning point in time of the place, an urban scale model of the current area around Sunset Park, Brooklyn occupies the center of the core sample as both figure and ground. Further up, floating above the city, the scale of time moves ahead towards a nearby and then distant future. Conceptualized as a composite artifact, the material of each of the nine future core samples suggests possible trajectories for the city. The artifact is informed by its place, neither iconic nor frequented by tourists; instead its layers of ground and future accumulations, mixtures of natural and increasingly artificial materials, are emblematic of the city at large.  A souvenir imagined as a physical fragment of a place, it acts as both repository of memory and fetish object to reflect upon dark or buoyant futures.
