Cup Collection Volunteering
General Information:
20,000 cups is a lot of cups! Our plan is to collect clear, plastic PETE 12-22oz. cups after large public events and also through partnership with local businesses and cultural institutions. We will temporarily install depositories for recycling plastic cups in various locations throughout the city. These will be printed with information about Figment NYC 2014 and the City of Dreams Pavilion, along with ways for the public to participate. Volunteers will rally at events and collect cups from local sources. It is important to note that each cup contributes to the design and is really the heart of the project!

Cups Collection throughout the city starts immediately and will be ongoing through April. Dates and times are flexibly TBD as we identify key cup sources.

Pavilion Assembly at CDR Studios
General Information:
The pavilion is inspired by hand-made crochet techniques, resulting in a lace-like pattern generated with the help of computational scripting. Once collected, the discarded cups are then cleaned and punched for drainage, then stitched together with zipties to build the serpentine structural "tape", then we will be build the topographical in-fill web. Our goal is to build one of the eight loops of the canopy a week. Aside from the raw materials, the Governors Cup canopy itself is all handmade, and we could use yours!

Assembly of parts prior to installation at Governor's Island will begin at the end of February and run through April. This will occur at CDR Studio in lower Manhattan on specific days and times through the week, listed below..

***Currently there are no more dates for CDR Studio Assembly, please refer to Governor's Island Assembly days***
