Multi-screen video installation, December 2003
Blackstone was a site-specific installation that used multiple video projections
and television monitors to comment on the physiological health of the Stevens
Square community in Minneapolis, MN. A building owner, a tenant, and a
neighborhood historian were contacted and video interviews were conducted.
A conversation inadvertently emerged from the video data as each person had
a different opinion on the physical and mental condition of their community.
The focus on the architecture was the only solid link between the three different
perspectives. The exhibition took place in a vacant apartment in one of Stevens
Square’s historic brownstone buildings.
