NYC Stillspotting

To a Great City, the second edition of stillspotting nyc, is a collaboration between composer Arvo Pärt and NYC/Oslo architectural firm Snøhetta. It consists of five stillspots—specially chosen locations where “locals and visitors can escape, find respite, and make peace with space in this ‘city of 8 million.’” Each location is coupled with a composition by Pärt (which is either playing out of speakers or an iPod provided by one of the many friendly, helpful stillspotting volunteers) and adorned with at least one weather balloon. Yesterday, intern Jeremiah Budin embarked on a journey to visit each stillspot, turning emotion and gravitas into a handy ranking guide.
