an interpretive playful multimedia installation with conflicting undertones
voices echoing around a cloud of mystery
surrounding your every move
you walk in
a terrible act has just taken place…
how could we have let this happen?
who did it?
who’s shadow is it really?
Sound was created in collaboration with Heinrich Zwahlen from a script I wrote in conjunction with the images and the novel, The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane. Sounds used were recorded from a workshop in Oliver Street School with children ages 11-14, clips from the movie, The Red Badge of Courage, directed by John Huston, guitar tracks by Ethan Shoshan, and found sound clips of war using a midi synth gathered by Heinrich Zwahlen.
Based on a series of workshops and photography sessions with groups of people, artists, and children in the Oliver Street Public Elementary School in Newark NJ.
