About the art:

Our series History, Heritage and the Lower East Side weaves together the stories of the past and the present in layers of paint, photographs, video, recordings, and music. Working with Jewish architecture from throughout the world, our work evokes the traces of melded histories.

These collaborative works consist of mediated digital painting collage and acrylic paint on canvas, with Augmented Reality. The imagery on view recalls the Jewish neighborhood of New York’s Lower East Side mixed with traditional signs and related contemporary motifs from current LES synagogues.

Historical interpretation is provided by historian Elyssa Sampson, with music by the composer Bob Gluck and Yiddish songs by Cynthia’s aunt, Sylvia Tepperman.

Using an iPad or smart-phone, the viewer triggers videos embedded in the artwork, embarking on a discovery process that leads the viewer closer to experiencing the sensations of the layered history of the Lower East Side.
