• Untitled: A Procession

Untitled: a procession on the borders of something that has already shifted

September 29, 2018

 

Taking the form of a procession through private and public spaces in Echo Park, we used fences to explore questions around privacy, private property, privilege, displacement, and belonging. Our project examines what it means to pass through a neighborhood, lingering in the histories, communities, materials, textures, and memories that make up such spaces.
