Flood and Stroke was a collaboration between Paul Amenta (S:L), Matt Fulk (CZS), and Chris Fox (ND). SiTE:LAB, Citizenshirt and Not Design have a history of collaborating on creative projects that blur the line between art, performance and commerce. During ArtPrize 2013, they joined forces to transform an unfinished atrium adjoining 54 Jefferson into a print-on-demand t-shirt shop that served as a microcosm for “The Not Yet”, SiTE:LAB’s ArtPrize exhibition. The artists, architects and designers participating in the show, as well as the juried award winners from SiTE:LAB’s 2012 ArtPrize exhibition, were challenged to design a t-shirt inspired by their piece, subject to certain pre-determined limitations. Their creations were displayed and available for purchase during ArtPrize in a retail space designed for the exhibition.
