Now through September 14, Brooklyn-based artists FAILE (who also have a exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum right now, what a summer for these dudes), have an interactive-installation in Times Square called "Wishing on You."

The entire structure is made of wood and carved wood a nice organic contrast in the midst of Times Square." Our contributor Joe Russo was their to document the whole thing!

His series Unmodern West was born on a solo 16,000 mile trip around the Western half of the United States. Looking for scenes that seemed unchanged since the sixties, Stewart captured images of America as it was and somehow still remains.
