Map of the Green Camp multi-directional slideshow, that I’m presenting tomorrow!
Some beautiful images in “I Loved Green Camp” edited by Peter Buckley. Take a look at it in the Lubalin Center if you get a chance.

…but if you are only talking about resistance to their creative destruction, you aren’t thinking about what your creative destruction is going to be about, and in particular what it is that you want to create and what it is that you need to destroy. ”

Production of that multi-directional slideshow format is moving slowly, but I’m applying it to the story of looking for Green Camp, a student space in the Ramapo mountains that Cooper Union used to own—used to, until they sold it in 1973.
Last year, two friends (Asher Mones and Angus Buchanan-Smith) and I were excited about the mythology that had been built up around Green Camp. It was sold off in 1973 to cover Cooper’s financial deficits, but traces of it remained in the institution: books in Lubalin Center, films in the library, alumni who would rave about it.
But no one talked about Green Camp in the present tense. We began to wonder what connection we really had to this place, this myth. Who had inherited it?
So we went looking for it, and we found it to be a juvenile correctional facility, where the boys work with the New Jersey Playwrights Theatre to write and produce one act plays.
