Closing Party: Fri, January 16, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
At Ramon’s Tailor
Temporal Cities is the start of an ongoing, collaborative project between artists Lizzy Brooks and Radka Pulliam. During their time at Ramon’s Tailor, they will explore the changing nature of a city and our own ideas of permanence. This project will evolve and continue to have a life long afterward!
The main visual, a projected, historic image of the Tenderloin, will exist in the window to lure passersby. Eventually, the pigment on the slide will fade. As each day passes, the image becomes lighter, imperceptible to some, but reminding us all that we are older beings, like last year’s machines, and that new things will come to take our places.
During the evenings, when the image is most visible, Lizzy and Radka will be in the space, or on the sidewalk, using this beacon of light as an entry point to talk with neighbors. They will record and edit these interactions for use in future exhibition venues.
Come be part of this experiment by contributing your spoken or written story.
