    For those that are curious
    Earlier this month some friends and myself wandered over to Roosevelt Island to see an art exhibit called the “Encampment”. Thom Sokoloski along with other artists teamed up to create a grid of tents that represent all the hardships that passed through Roosevelt Island. Visit his site to see more about the exhibit http://www.thomsokoloski.com . I was able to take some photos of the tents that were set up and I also was able to get some interesting photos of the old hospital there as well.

    That's not a watermark. That's a shit-stain.

    the pics are pretty dark and the white really takes away the focus from the rest of the pic

    Each tent represented a story of someone who was in that hospital. At different points that hospital served different needs. It was a polio hospital and it was also a mental asylum. So this one artist basically began the idea of making a grid of tents and then having various artist come in and decorate each one inside.
