It was part of an really amazing installation by Group 238 at Grace Exhibition Space (840 Broadway) during the 2007 Bushwick Open Studios
See the complete installation here.
I remember how sparse and ridiculous it appeared at first yet it felt authentic. It was as if the artists had sketched their idea in strips of canvas, piping, wiring and a ladder. When I walking through the installation I remember being able to "feel" it–the alienation and poverty–more than see it.
It felt as ephemeral as a north Brooklyn loft in disrepair.
