public art + installation
My public art projects are site-specific, community responsive, and interactive. A similar ideation process can easily be used to create experiential marketing pieces.
FBX:BOMB was Fairbanks, Alaska's first live projection art installation. The public was invited to come down to the project site to participate. I projected a question/prompt onto the wall and audience members contributed their response via text message. A few seconds later answers appeared on the wall.
My project not only introduced Fairbanks to projection bombing, it also launched a new space for projection installation pieces that will now be curated and shown during the darkest months of Fairbanks (Oct - Mar).
MY WISH FOR OZARK
My Wish For Ozark was a special project created in downtown Ozark, Alabama to help commemorate the town’s homecoming celebration. All Ozarkians were invited to share a remembrance of the past and/or a wish for the future of the Ozark. The wishes were displayed on stars falling from the ceiling in the window of the Dowling Museum/Ann Rudd Art Center on the square in downtown Ozark for Homecoming/Claybank Jamboree weekend. The wishes also live online on the project website.
LAST OF THE ITALIANS
The Last of the Italians is an extension of a newspaper article of the same name that I wrote for NY Press/Our Town Downtown in June 2012. It began as a project to capture the lives of the women who call the neighborhood surrounding St. Anthony’s on Houston Street home. The project has since grown to include the men and local businesses with ties to what was once a vibrant and dominant Italian community in South Greenwich Village.
The Last of the Italians is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
