Work in progress: Iterations 2018-2021

The project Iterations (working title), which takes place in the Pico area of Santa Monica, CA, looks at the archive as a process rather than a permanent collection as well as recent history of displacement in the Pico area. Drawing upon the experiences of the project Culture Mapping 90404 initiated by 18th street Arts Center I will be collecting local stories as supplement to the existing historical narratives. Through interviews, digitization of private images and field recordings – a multifaceted installation will took form as a research presentation over the course of six months, and was presented at the Atrium Gallery at 18th Street Arts Center between 23. February – 5. April 2019. The project will conclude in a larger film production in 2021 in collaboration with Quinn Research Center. Photo: Maj Hasager
