IT IS WHAT BUSHWICK IS
2017 Summer Bushwick, NY
Columbia GSAPP Reading NY Urbanism Instructor: Cassim Shepard
Partner: Tian Guo, Jimmy Guo
The project documented the transformation of Bushwick, a historical ghetto, to artist community through a street art project "Bushwick Collective". It also opened up a discussion about Bushwick's current real estate gentrification pressure, which is a common urban issue for neighborhoods in transformation. The video narrated the story through series of street footages and interviews from artist, local residents, project founder, and tourist.
