NYC is known for it’s strange, crazy, and random events. Here’s one of them.
If you have ever been to NYC it is pretty much guaranteed that you will see at least one if not 10, crazy things on your trip. There is so much to see and do; inspiring cultures and cuisines surrounding you, that it is hard to do it all in just one go. However, one of the most random events I have encountered recently is NewMindSpace’s Light Saber Battle.
NewMindSpace is pretty well known for its outdoor events including an annual Pillow Fight in Union Square around April, a Bubble Battle, and the Light Saber Battle. I attended the Light Saber Battle this year, which happened in September in Washington Square Park. A Star War geek’s dream and a local photographer’s canvas combined as the night lit up with dancing lights.

For French photographer Nathalie Dufaur-Dessus, taking a photograph is more than just finding the perfect lighting or composition—it's about sharing a piece of oneself to the audience through an emotional visual story. Dive deeper into the mind of our TEN AND ONE Awards judges in this interview.
Memory is a funny thing: it is what is left out of an experience, and yet unreliable to be accurate. Polish artist Weronika Gęsicka has found a way to manipulate memories by fragmenting them from vintage images and assembling them into new ones.
Most artists are known to be empathetic, capable of feeling everything, both good and bad, in their surroundings. Some see it as a curse driving them to madness. Brittani Sensabaugh chooses to see it as a gift.
