In the Fold -Harlem

In The Fold Projection Modules 1 – 4 – Performed on Superbowl Sunday @ 1351 Amsterdam Avenue, Harlem, NYC (February 1st; 2015)

In The Fold is a semi-private durational performance / installation founded on the antique technology of slide projection.  Utilizing my extensive collection of personal and found 35 mm slides, I placed 4 folded paper floating Muira screens at the North, South, East, & West points of the exhibition space.  In The Fold was performed initially in an unheated, empty storefront in West Harlem NYC, on Superbowl Sunday, 2015.

20 audience members were invited to the durational performance (ca. 50 minutes), which encompassed 3500 square feet of frigid exhibition space.

My collection includes approximately 350 images culled from various sources — personal photos taken by myself and friends during urban walks of various U.S. cities in the last decade — found slides of early performances held at PS1 — images of various European capitals — map slides — advertising imagery — art historical images — and various miscellany.
