Sydney

Sydney was the first drawing made by foot and public transportation. It also was a kind of mini drawing. While most of the drawings in cities outside of the US are 59 kilometers long, the drawing in Sydney was half that length (with 59 turns). It was definitely appreciated after dealing with Sydney public transportation. The numeral 5 was drawn on August 7, 2012, from 7:15:36 p.m. till 9:55:44 p.m., mostly by foot, except for one segment on the top of the 5. Buses stopped running at 6:30 p.m. at Erskineville, where the drawing started, and the only bus available that night was on Harris Street. The drawing of the number 9 was postponed until the following morning with the hope that there would be more buses at that time. There were more, but they did not stop at the bus stop. It happened to be the rule in Sydney that a bus has to be caught from the stop the same way as a taxi. It came naturally after several buses passed by without stopping. Eight buses were used during the drawing of the number 9; there were also several walks, including a long promenade along the alley of Centennial Park. On August 8, the numeral 9 started at 9:52:03 a.m. and finished at 1:15:16 p.m. The Sydney drawing was within 59 days of the 59th Sydney Film Festival (June 6–17, 2012), the most highly attended Sydney Film Festival to date. On the top of the number 9, the route passed by Hotel 59. This drawing was made in memory of art critic Robert Hughes, who was from Sydney and had died a day earlier in New York.

Beijing

China’s total area, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica and the UN Demographic Yearbook, is 9,596,961 square kilometers. China borders 14 (5 plus 9) nations, more than any other country except Russia, which also borders 14. In 2005, Reporters Without Borders ranked China 159th out of 167 states in its Annual World Press Freedom Index. The 2010 census recorded a total of 593,832 foreign citizens living in China, including 66,159 from Japan. A 1998 survey by Adherents.com found that 59 percent of the population was nonreligious. The Beijing City Drawing started at 1:40 p.m. on August 24, not far from Beijing West Railway Station, and finished at 5:20 p.m., not far from Beijing Central Railway Station, built in 1959, the same year the first Bronze Age Xia dynasty was excavated in the Henan province, a major expansion of Tiananmen Square in Beijing was completed, and the Ten Great Buildings were erected. The City Drawing in Beijing was made by Peking University professor Junfeng Liu and his wife, Lianzhe. Junfeng was driving and Lianzhe was navigating, with Irina riding and controlling the tracking device. Both Junfeng and Lianzhe noticed that there were not many signs with street names in Beijing, but even if there were plenty, they would still be in Chinese. The help of the young professional couple was critical for the City Drawingin Beijing. Due to government traffic regulations in the city, on each weekday, cars with certain plate numbers are prohibited from driving. On Friday, the day for the City Drawing, numbers 1 and 6 were prohibited in Beijing, while 5 and 9 freely drove by. An elevation of 59 meters was registered four (9 minus 5) times during the trip.

Moscow

The City Drawingin Moscow was realized on Sunday, August 25, 2012 a week before the annual Federal City Day, with the help of the head designers of the superb Moscow design studio Unlabeled. Executive web programming director Timofey Tkachenko was driving, and Irina Danilova was navigating with the help of interior design executive Olga Terekhova. The City Drawing started at 1:20:00 p.m. near Moscow University and the famous overlook of the Moscow cityscape at Vorobyovy Gory and finished at 6:33:43 p.m. in the Danilovsky District. A few stops were made on the way. The average temperature in Moscow throughout the year is 5.9 degrees Celsius. There are two license-plate codes in the Moscow region, 50 and 90. The first American exhibition in the Soviet Union, the American National Exhibition, was held in Moscow in 1959. The drawing trip passed right by the Moscow–59 restaurant on Oruzheiny Drive (not far from Irina’s former Moscow apartment) and the Moscow–59 cruise ship on the Moscow River.

Kharkov

Kharkov, Ukraine, Irina’s native city, was a tough nut to crack, starting with the inability to sketch the trajectory of the trip on Google Maps: while drawing the number 9, the number 5 would disappear. Leading Kharkov Art Museum restorer Svetlana Efanova bravely drove her car over numerous bumps and through sloughs filled with water. Irina was riding and navigating. Several times, Google directions led to roads with locked barriers (one was unlocked and opened manually). Once, there were a dozen steps in the middle of the road. The round part of the figure 9 was drawn together with Irina’s cousins, Gertrud Wimmer and Aleksandr Fesenko. The City Drawing in Kharkov was made on August 26, 2012, 59 hours after the official beginning of Kharkov’s 359th year. The trip went by the building on Sumskaya Street where Irina lived during most of her time in Kharkov; the largest market in the Ukraine, Barabashovo; and the cemetery with the graves of Irina’s great-grandmother, who died in 1959, and grandmother. According to Wikipedia, Kharkov has more than 59 scientific institutes and 30 establishments of higher education, plus 29 subway stations. The highest registered population in Kharkov was 1,593,970, in 1989. There were 59 hotels in Kharkov at the time of the drawing.

Tallinn 

Thedrawingin Tallinn, Estonia, was the first City Drawing on the 59th parallel north, which is at a 59-degree angle from the core of the Earth and approximately 59 miles wide. The drawing was made within 59 days after the first Latitude 59 Conference, held in June by Tallinn University of Technology, which brought together innovators and entrepreneurs living within 300 kilometers of either side of the 59th parallel north in the Nordic and Baltic regions. Tallinn, which now occupies an area of 159.2 square kilometers and is in its 859th year since it was first put on the map by the Muslim cartographer Muhammad al-Idrisi, is the oldest city in northern Europe. The 159-meter Gothic spire of St. Olaf’s Church made it the tallest building in the world for 77 years, including 1559 and 1599. The drawing in Tallinn was organized by Irina’s niece, Valeria Mizun. In the early morning of August 28, 2012, the hired van driven by Aleksander Malyshev with Valeria and Irina left St. Petersburg and for 5 hours followed the 59th parallel north all the way through Narva, a border town between Estonia and Russia, to Tallinn. The City Drawing started in a lavish suburb of Tallinn at 12:50:29 p.m. and finished at 6:44:51 p.m. on someone’s nearby farm. When drawing the number 5, the trajectory came close to the residence of Estonian installation artist and photographer Tanja Muravskaja, who generously led a tour around the “old city” during the lunch break (1:36:48 p.m. to 5:09:12 p.m.) and then joined for the rest of the drawing.

St. Petersburg 

The second City Drawing on the 59th parallel north was a drawing in St. Petersburg that stays on the northern part of it. The top of the number 9 showed a latitude of 59 degrees and 59 minutes. There are more than 159 museums, many more than 59 theaters, and more than 59 bridges in St. Petersburg. On August 29, 2012, Sergey Mizun, Valeria Mizun’s husband, was driving the family car, with his wife and Irina Danilova navigating. The drawing started at 8:50:11 p.m. at Moscow Prospect on Obvodny Canal, the longest canal in St. Petersburg, which served as the southern limit of the city in the nineteenth century, and finished at 11:06:26 p.m. on KAD (“Ring Auto Road”), the eastern part of the ring road not far from the exit to Murmansky Highway. Sergey and Valeria Mizun grew up and met in Murmansk, Russia. Both were born 59 years after the founding of Murmansk during World War One. Accommodations in St. Petersburg include the Taleon Imperial Hotel at 59 Moika Emb; Liteiny Prospekt, 59; and Mini-Hotel on Bukharestskaya 59.

Stockholm

The City Drawingin Stockholm was made on September 1, 2012, the 59th day after a Swedish advertising agency parachuted teddy bears over Minsk in order to promote human rights in Belarus. The year 2012 is the 860th anniversary since the city was first called Stockholm. When exactly it happened we do not know, so theoretically, Stockholm could still have been 859 at the time of the drawing or at the time of the teddy bear intervention. Stockholm is one of the cities which celebrates its position on the 59th parallel north, with the 59 Degree North Dance Festival, Tango 59 Degrees, and a new wacky art group, 59 @ IKEA. The StockholmCity Drawing was made with the help of r a k e t a, an artists’ collaborative organization. Artist Asa Lipka Falck helped to organize the trip. Jann Lipka, a photographer, was the main drawer, driving his car around Stockholm. Irina Danilova controlled the GPS signals while trying to pronounce the names of the streets. Ulrika Cristell, an artist and member of r a k e t a, helped with navigation. Two tunnels swallowed some parts of the number 9. The 59-kilometer drawing started at 7:52:44 p.m. and finished in record time at 9:54:43 p.m. The blue line extending from the number 9 goes straight to one of Stockholm’s sister cities, Reykjavik.

Reykjavik

TheCity Drawingin Reykjavik was completed during a stopover in Iceland on the way from Stockholm to New York. Irina drove, navigated, and transmitted the GPS signal for this City Drawing in the northernmost capital city in the world, which has a metropolitan density of 259 people per square kilometer. The trip started at 10:55:36 a.m. and finished at 12:55:59 p.m. There was not enough time for the other 59 things to do in Reykjavik that are listed on Trip Advisor, even for its top-rated ride on Icelandic horses that are under 59 inches in height. There was also no time to drive 159 kilometers north from Reykjavik to visit Iceland’s unpaved Route 59.

The City Drawingin Reykjavik was the last of eight City Drawings made during the performance 59 Hours Flying Around the Globe, an homage to the first flight (59 seconds long) by Wilbur Wright.

The above City Drawings were completed in 2012, using funds given to the artist for her participation in the first annual dARTboard exhibition on Vilcek.org.


New York

Manhattan is a place to visit. Brooklyn is a place to live and work. Ideal ratio, 5:9. On October 30, 2009, Irina Danilova, with David Ross, drove around NYC, while Hiram Levy was monitoring the car’s movement from Princeton. It was driven in Manhattan and Brooklyn, making a drawing on the city. This performance was part of Interrupted Correspondence/Vice-Versa: Five Years Fragments (curator Edward Dorrian) at the James Taylor Gallery in London. It started at 8:43 am at the corner of Greenwich Ave. and Watts St. in Manhattan, and finished at 12:23 pm in Brooklyn on Fulton St. at Classon Ave.

Miami & Miami Beach

What do Miami and New York City have in common? They both have multiple 59th streets; and for a week in December, Miami, like New York, becomes a center of world art. The Miami drawing was done on December 5, 2009, (Miami Beach on December 6, 2009) during the Basel Miami Fair. Irina Danilova drove while Hiram Levy tracked and navigated the car’s movement from Princeton. The December 5th performance started at 5:25 pm at the corner of N.

“Los Angeles is the New York City of the West.” -Steve Fels. NYC’s Pier 59 Studio has a parallel office in Santa Monica. Both world records of 59 seconds in men’s 100-meter butterfly were made in Los Angeles (by Fred Schmidt and Lance Larson). The LA drawing was made on December 23, 2009, by Ignat and Ruthie Ayzenberg (driving and navigating, respectively). Irina Danilova was tracking online from Brooklyn. It started at 10:35 am on W.

This trip was 76 miles long. Ignat suggested that figures be made 59 miles in length next time.

Cleveland

Cleveland lies 59 miles west of the Ohio border with Pennsylvania. Elevation in many places around Cleveland is 590-599 feet. Industrial Cleveland peaked in 1959. When Clevelander Lena Lidsky was asked how number 59 might be significant for Cleveland, “59 inches of snow” was her answer. The City Drawing performance of January 8, 2010, was canceled due to a heavy snowstorm. The ground was covered with 59 centimeters of snow. A 59-inch ice cone was hanging from a roof. The drawing was made on January 10, 2010. Irina Danilova’s MetLife (climbing 59 floors) was first screened in Cleveland in 1995 during the Cleveland International Performance Art Festival. The next year, her performance Route 59 was realized: 59 passengers (including a team of 59 cardboard football players) in bus number 59, traveled at 59 kilometers/hour from Ravenna to Akron, along Ohio Route 59.

The 59-mile trip took 2 hours and 59 minutes. Hiram Levy drove, with Irina Danilova navigating. Hiram’s friend Susan Dunlap Kasibhatla, who was born and raised in Tulsa, was following online from Durham, North Carolina. When the lower part of the 5 was drawn, Susan noticed that it went between her old school and old family home. Hiram and Irina visited both. The drawing of number 5 was modified to visit one of several short 59th streets in the southern part of Tulsa. Director of Living Arts of Tulsa, Steve Liggett, helped prepare for the drawing.

Quad Cities

The Quad Cities actually consist of 5 cities (5 and 9: 5 + quad = 9). It used to be the Tri-Cities, which became Quad and remained Quad for so long that when the fifth town grew up, the name Quint Cities was not adopted. Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa, and Moline, East Moline, and Rock Island in Illinois cover an area of 5,993 square kilometers, with a highest elevation of 259 meters and lowest of 590 feet. The Mississippi River (the largest river system in North America, with an average flow of 593,000 cubic feet/second and minimum of 159,000 cubic feet/second) is the dividing line between Iowa and Illinois in the middle of the Quad Cities. The drawing, with Hiram Levy driving and Irina Danilova navigating, started at 11:35 am at the Sunset Line exit of Centennial Expy. in Rock Island, Illinois, at a point with elevation 459 feet.

Phoenix

The Phoenix City Drawing was made at the very end of 2011, symbolically for “phoenix,” finishing a year, to resume the rest of the project in 2012. On December 27th, Olga and Kesha drove and navigated, while Irina Danilova monitored the car’s movement from New Hope, Pennsylvania. Phoenix was established on the ruins of the ancient civilization of the Hohokam peoples, who had created hundreds of miles of irrigation canals. In 1859, a new series of canals was built by Jack Swilling, thus laying the foundation for the modern city of Phoenix, which was first called Swilling’s Mill. The tracking device recorded an elevation of 1059 feet a few times; and along North 59th Ave., the car had a heading of 359 degrees. The trip started at 10:39 am on W.
