Very cool idea - are you thinking primarily photography based or more multimedia?
Im excited about three main possibilities for the work. As a multimedia projection/video based version that sculpts archival images and contemporary ones and has interviews and sound and is immersive. this would be great both indoors and outdoors. The other mediums I'm excited about is as a print based exhibition, a collage of images text and visuals that tell this story as a print based experience. the final medium is as a book. I don't expect them, all to happen simultaneously and i'm gratefully open to how opportunities shape which form comes first. In this moment where projects like this are under supported I'm glad to have a project that can be versatile for various opportunities through grants, exhibition and public engagement initiatives.
Awesome. Have you reached out to anyone yet to get this going? And do you know of any artists working on similar work? I might know one... I'll add him to the project if you don't mind
