Installation / Performance


I was selected to participate in this project that created an outdoor installation on Pearl St. in Chinatown to reinvigorate the community; a place that everyone can enjoy whether living on the streets or in a high-rise. Our team created an installation/performance that was shaped by the surroundings on Pearl Street. Initially a box, the installation breaks into a system of parts as a daily ritual, creating a different spatial choreography each day before closing up again in the evening.
