Entrance to show with documentation, #500, 1265 Griswold Detroit

1265 Griswold Detroit - My Loft
Detroit, Michigan US 04/1999

An individual project proposed for my film study class at Wayne State University (professor Kaitlin Hanger). The show focused on worldwide problems, consumerism, identity crisis, apathy and death.

There were five installation sections containing videos, films, mirrored projections & artwork. There was also one actress doing live performance within one section; she only performed when I periodically changed sounds on a mixer (they were her cues). Original videos were made with two actresses (one being the live performance artist) that looped in the installation too.

Note: This was another one of my involved Detroit shows, so more details to come...
