The Lowline Lab

Short Doc / Released / Nowness

Under the streets of New York’s Lower East Side lies a new project straight out of science fiction. A former trolley terminal is in the process of being turned into the world’s first underground park—the Lowline. The film is released through Nowness.

Nancy Whang of the iconic New York band, LCD Soundsystem delivers a tongue-in-cheek voice-over.

 The Lowline Lab is an open laboratory that’s designed to test and showcase how the Lowline will grow and sustain plants underground.

 Nancy Whang sings and plays the keyboard in LCD Soundsystem. She is also, we learn, a world famous voice-over artiste who likes to relax among plants.

 Built inside an abandoned market just two blocks from the site of the future Lowline, the Lowline Lab includes a series of controlled experiments in an environment mimicking the actual Lowline.
