Walking Through the Lonesome City        

 This multimedia installation piece engages regional and racial stereotypes as a critique on perceptions of the urban experience. It is about moving though an urban space and suddenly feeling unsettled. Whether it is a familiar space or one that is new to us, at times we have a sensation that tells us we are suddenly not in a safe place anymore.  This uses this experience of feeling threatened to evoke a visceral memory in the viewer and allow them to consider their own similar experiences.

 This installation engages participants on multiple levels and provides a different experience at different times of the day as well as inside and outside the architectural space of the building. During the bright daytime hours, it is a graphic portrait and silhouette piece that describes apprehension. After dark the video component is engaged and the setting for the piece reveals itself, giving life and movement to the installation.
