For the ILLUMINUS event, I have created a new performance VAGABOND CITY, a walking visualization of the present and the past. The imagery is of what Boston might have looked like before colonization and industrialization are projected on the streets and building, and on the moving house form are images of what home might have looked like before the land was outfitted with buildings, roads, and monuments. The shadowy form represents the echoing presence the past still has on contemporary city life and history.
The performance took place on November 03 at 6:00-9:00 pm along Washington St. in Downtown Crossing, Boston, MA.
