PortSide NewYork presents Existential Navigational Math during nautical twilight 9:02 pm – 9:44 pm. FREE lecture with projections: Laurent Derobert’s existential mathematics lead to existential navigation, where drift is passion and wanderings are the destination. Musing through the relationship between navigation, astronomy, mathematics and poetry, the audience will deviate with him as he repurposes equations into haikus and formulas into metaphors of our own odysseys.  Derobert has presented at the Palais de Tokyo, MOMA PS1 and FIAC.   The lecture will be followed by a culinary performance by Paris-based Japanese artist Lei SAITO.

To get there: Take our SBK NYC Ferry to Red Hook/Atlantic Basin. Exit the landing and make a left to get to the historic Mary A. Whalen, moored in Atlantic Basin, to the left of our dock.
