Pedro Reyes’s temporary art installation, Sanatorium, the first edition in the Guggenheim series, stillspotting nyc, pops up in Downtown Brooklyn June 2-5 and June 9-12. In the course of two hours, visitors get to experience a range of treatments based upon an initial consult with the receptionist. Here’s a list of the possible ways to get healed:
1. Leave words behind and let your brain relax in a Conversation with the Bird.
2. Need to find the answer to that burning question? Why not ask the best minds that have walked the earth at the Philosophical Casino?
3. Confess one urban secret, and take another with you with no questions asked at Cityleaks.
4. Write the words that you’ll be remembered by at Epitaphs.
5. Is she or he the perfect match for you? Taste the flavor of love at the Compatibility Test for Couples.
6. See your city dilemmas abridged as a mathematical formula at Onthological Algebra.
7. Channel your healing energies even when you are far away from Brooklyn with Goodoo.
