Visual Character Re-defined Through This Weekend and Beyond

Sometimes the visual dynamic of New York, and Manhattan in particular, can be too much --icf-logo2 too much a jumble, or a clash of priorities and styles, a cavalcade of dissonance. But sometimes, something comes into view that re-orders the environment so much that it both jars the visual ecology and redefines it.

That happened yesterday when I saw three large brightly colored metal shipping containers stamped CHARACTER PROJECT on the front and back sitting in various public spaces in Manhattan.

Plopped down into high-traffic public pavilions, these boxes captured the attention and altered the impact of the space they occupied. But because they were there as pop-up movie theaters, meant to feature eight shorts commissioned by the USA Network and RSA Films (Ridley and Tony Scott's company), they did more than visually affect the street dynamic -- they became site-specific gallery spaces as well.

Clare Kramer, of Buffy: The Vampire fame, will also be in attendance. A popular guest at several of the Wizard World Tour stops, Kramer will be on hand to meet fans, sign autographs and take photos. "When I found out that Wizard World was coming to Los Angeles, I was so excited. They are one of the most professionally run organizations out there, and I just love every minute of it," said Clare Kramer.
