Visual Voices: Last Resort Communication for the Masses
This is my most recent project idea about the relationship between the squatters of Albany Bulb and the City of Albany. It proposes an installation of fluorescent lights, each with switches, where anyone can speak their mind, and advertise it to the entire bay....
Currently, the City of Albany has been evicting people living peacefully at the Albany Bulb, sometimes destroying their belongings, and their makeshift homes.
This participatory project is a last-resort platform for communication--a means of representing the underrepresented in urban space.
I am currently looking for ideas (and funding) to turn this into a portable public installation. Please let me know if you know of any competitions, grants, other caring donors that would love to sponsor a letter of this project!
