Loft Project: Eyes on NYC (Observation Changes the Observed)

The eyes of City Governments nationwide are upon us. Our eyes too should be on them.

The short term goals of LOFT PROJECT :: EYES ON NYC, Party for the People’s pilot project, are three-fold in nature:

  1. Do our part to fix the NYC Loft Board Rules by holding those revising the rules accountable for their actions.
  2. Highlight past injustice perpetrated upon the NYC Loft Tenant community in such a way that reopening the Loft Law window application period ASAP becomes a moral imperative for the New York State Legislature. Coming Soon: PORTRAITS: INJUSTICE
  3. Prevent the eviction of those unjustly facing eviction.

People’s homes and LiveWork spaces are at stake. Moreover, as goes New York City’s threatened Loft Community, so too may well go Loft communities in East Bay, LA and elsewhere around the nation. The eyes of City Governments nationwide are upon us. Our eyes too should be on them.

Shapevent is the one man think tank of Zevan Rosser, a relentless seeker of sense in chaos. Utilizing his sophisticated programming skills along with a visual major and an auditory minor experimental approach to mathematics that treats nature’s numerical mysteries as if a jungle to be explored and modeled rather than the jail from which most artists seek to escape, Zevan is a pioneer in the long since discovered, but as yet to be properly appreciated, field of evolutionary mathematics. Related: THE MATHS OF ALTRUISM part ii
