‘The Eternal Space’ combines photography and play to showcase old New York, Penn Station

A campaign to transform a two-man play into a “full fledged production”is in danger of missing its Kickstarter funding goal.

With a little over two days to go (57 hours at the time this story was published), The Eternal Space campaign has raised $10,500 toward a $20,000 goal.

The Eternal Space is a play that combines the work of four photographers who documented the 1963 demolition of old Penn Station, a landmark and the center of public transit in New York City.

Their photos are the the backdrop as the play’s characters fight over the preservation of common heritage and the desire for progress that takes place at some time or another in all urban centers.

Whether or not the campaign succeeds, the photography that inspired a play and documented the demolition of Penn Station is fascinating. Check out the video.
