Jonah Freeman: Sixteen Scenarios

About the Exhibition

With Sixteen Scenarios, Jonah Freeman (b.1975, USA) creates a mirrored labyrinth in the Grand Lobby of the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Library. Interested in the ways our ideas and emotions are influenced by contemporary architectural spaces, Freeman based his design for Sixteen Scenarios on a generic model for metropolitan steel-and-glass architecture, creating an aluminum and Plexiglas structure with multiple doorways, interlinking passageways and atrium-like rooms. Inside Sixteen Scenarios, a variety of colorful neon lighting fluctuates and fades intermittently, suggesting a range of possible theatrical experiences, similar to those found in casinos, shopping malls and movie theaters.
