Are We There Yet?: Video/Installation

Created for DISLOCATE 08’s Festival of Locality and Technology, Japan. The interactive video installation, and public project Are We There Yet? maps the internal thoughts and memories of passengers above and below ground on the Yokohama subway. Stories, sounds and video excerpts were embedded on an interactive map (a hacked computer with 32 buttons, each containing one film clip created from interviews and footage shot on the Yokohama Blue Line) Visitors in the exhibition pushed buttons on the interactive map to see and hear stories from each station. Alternately, visitors downloaded an audio version available in the gallery or online and traveled the subway to hear these stories at the exact location they took place. Coproduced and directed with Nomi Talisman
