One Work: Gelatin's The B-Thing
There's so much mystery surrounding Austrian collective Gelatin's The B-Thing that some believe it never really took place. This barely plausible architectural intervention on the ninety-first floor of the World Trade Center in 2000 was shown – once and once only – to a lucky handful of invited guests. Among them was artist Maria Hassabi, who witnessed the events on a Sunday morning in Lower Manhattan. By Maria Hassabi

Tenzing Barshee and Camila McHugh spoke to Gina Beavers about trying too hard, making your own memes, and the realness of the world.
