MFA Photography Alumni Magali Duzant (’14) Presents: One If By Night: A Ride Under the Cosmos 9/10

Written by:


MFA Photography Alumni Magali Duzant (’14) has joined Artists Alliance Inc. and Bike New York for a ride under the cosmos. Riders will navigate between the sea and stars, wending their way along the East River from Queens to Brooklyn, creating a constellation of light along their way.

The group will travel between pre-determined locations, stopping along their way, to project a curated selection of artist videos out into the night. Ranging in size and aesthetic, each film will bring to life the group’s surroundings—from stars to comets, to the moon as a means of inspiration. Riders become both the messengers and the receivers, creating not only a mobile delivery chain, but a mobile audience.

In a city such as NY, in which we rarely get to see stars, projecting light back into the night becomes a response. As Carl Sagan declared in the opening of his 1980 book, Cosmos, “The cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be…Our feeblest contemplations of the cosmos stir us … We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”
