Installation w/ video projection, sound, and audience generated-footage

2013

with Dana Heffern

A site-specific installation that took place over three days at the Design Center at Goddard College activated this historic building designed by 1970’s Vermont architect David Sellars and built by Sellars and his students, and now in disrepair. A three-story video projection of iron sand taken from an abandoned mine fills the windows, asking the viewer to consider how we might mine the site for future inspiration and find value in what is hidden, unrefined, and overlooked. Audience generated footage is projected via live feed from a Go Pro camera embedded in a miner’s hat that participants can wear as they explore condemned parts of the building.
