About Anytime, Now. Somewhere, Here.
A couple of years ago, I found a diary written by a man named Henry sitting in a box on top of a stack of old books near Prospect Park. The diary contains thoughts and drawings for six structures meant to be built in and around Prospect Park. I’ve decided, in time, to build all six, using Henry’s drawings as a guide. Anytime, Now. Somewhere, Here: Peninsula, is the first. It contains a song written using diary entries and free copies of excerpts from Henry’s diary are made available to the public.

€”Excerpt from Henry’s journalI had a curious dream. I was in the park, alone, completely alone, at that moment between light and dark, and I felt in the dream, I felt that I was waiting for darkness to come but it didn’t€¦all around the park, I saw these strange constructions, by the carousel, on Sullivan Hill€¦In the dream I counted six in all€¦And when I awoke in the morning, with the dream as fresh in my mind as any waking thought I had ever had, I said to myself
I AM A CABINET
