Conscious Cycle on Roosevelt Island


Roosevelt Island sure is a trash-conscious part of town. Earlier this year I went to check out their trash tubes. Now the island is host to a trashtastic artsy event where people gather old wood, build a wall and decorate it. Please send photos if you go!

Conscious Cycle is a filmed interactive art event that brings artists and community members together in an effort to explore, educate, and learn about Conscious living and life’s Cyclical nature.

Conscious Cycle consists of the following: We reclaim discarded wood, build a wall out of it and invite artists to paint the wall, one after the other, while being filmed for a time-lapse movie. Mural themes revolve around Consciousness and Cycles. Throughout the event DJs play music, dancers perform, internal artists like yogis and tai chi practitioners teach and demonstrate, artists collaborate, and community members are encouraged to interact with the materials and us.

Three years old, this 8th Conscious Cycle goes down on Roosevelt Island this Saturday and Sunday.  It’ll be full of conscious good times, suitable for all ages and it’s free.  Please join in and explore your creativity.  Plus we like to dance and the music is always great, come get down to the sights and sounds.

Conscious Cycle has been creating their interactive art environment at Figment on Governors Island since 2008, and they are excited to bring their vibe to another island! Come join us for another live painting event this Saturday and Sunday. We’ll have bucket and spray paint. You bring your specific supplies. Let’s make more art.
