Those of us with office jobs often spend our days vicariously engaging with the world through our computer screens. As an antidote to the sedentary lifestyle, Jana Winderenand Marc Fornes collaborated on “Situation Room,” an immersive installation that will shake up viewers’ senses. Currently on view at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York, “Situation Room” is described as a sound object. The enormous, hot pink structure not only envelopes viewers in a fluorescent, biomorphic mass. It also vibrates with sound when visitors crawl through the work’s nooks and crannies, which the artists say is a feature intended to make us question the ways we interact with our built environments. Next time your senses feel dulled, you can venture into the “Situation Room” through November 1.

I’ve photographed hundreds of couples. And the cynical side of me is aware that even the unhappiest couples can muster up some affection for a photograph. But these two had the sort of love that cannot be faked. They’ve been together for 35 years. Every time he talked, she looked at him with the biggest smile on her face. “He does absolutely everything for me,” she said, “I’m completely spoiled.”
The man was equally as passionate. “I used to be a butcher,” he told me. He leaned forward and lowered his voice to a whisper: “She used to come into my store. Every week I would set apart the best piece of meat for her. And look how it turned out— I ended up with the best piece of meat of them all.”
This one reads like a sitcom plot. Meet Mike and Zelda from Crown Heights. Mike was working as a stay-at-home Dad when he decided to open up a coffee shop on Franklin Ave. He named the coffee shop Little Zelda, after his daughter. Mike and Zelda still spend a lot of time together at the shop. There’s even a growth chart for Zelda on the wall.
been there! good coffee
