Ten years ago, Triple Canopy contributor Dan Torop had “a dream of floating at twilight above orange traffic” on the Bowery. In "Virtual Bowery," published in issue 6, Urbanisms: Model Cities, Torop revisited that vision—and recreated the Bowery of yore, populating it with flocks of trumpeter swans—using an arcane programming language. In the next week he'll present this work three times in New York: on Thursday and Friday at 8:30 at Mabou Mines, as part of a series devoted to connectivity and complexity; and on Tuesday at 7:00 at NYU's 80WSE gallery.
