BLURB: Dan Schreiner’s What’s underfoot experiments with field recordings taken inside School 12 and found texts recorded by the artist. The texts distill and distort anonymous comments left beneath a 2011 online article reporting the soon-to-be demolition of School 6 in Yonkers. Applied to School 12, currently being repurposed and revitalized, these texts evoke the nostalgic power of history - both specific and universal - and how the building's current state between imagined past and possible future(s) create a sense of suspension and timelessness.
