We teamed up with Slanted Studios to create a flexible artistic platform that tells New Yorkers about Freshkills Park. Four interactive dioramas tell the story of Freshkills’ history, transformation, and engaging future. Visitors use their mobile phones to activate each diorama and learn about the park. Smartphones not required — making the platform accessible to all New Yorkers.
