The Wall Street Journal has an article about No Longer Empty's latest project, a recreation of a record store in a vacant space in Manhattan.
Ted Riederer and 40 other artists have created the mock "shop," which will include record albums that have their covers blacked out except for a few words. Visitors flip through the stack to read a poem. It's a piece that Mr. Riederer calls a "love letter" to the dying concept of a record store. "My goal is ... to have them in the store for 30 minutes until they realize it's not a store," he says.Luckily, being located in Athens, Ga., we still have record stores, including ones that sell LPs, but the concept is still a fun use for an empty space.
