LIGHT CITY BALTIMORE: NEIGHBORHOOD LIGHTS 

BALTIMORE, MD

Neighborhood Lights is an immersive community arts program of Light City Baltimore, organized by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, that branches out beyond Baltimore’s Inner Harbor into five neighborhoods throughout Baltimore City. Selected artists work directly with one of five participating neighborhoods to create an illuminated public project within the neighborhood of their residency during the inaugural Light City Baltimore festival March 28-April 3, 2016.

As the artist-in-residence for the Hampden neighborhood, I worked with community members to create a light-based art installation on 36th Street - otherwise known as “The Avenue”.  The installation was open to the public during the week of the Light City Festival.  Prior to the festival, I hosted a two-day animation workshop at Art With a Heart, where residents of all ages created flip-books and stop motion animations.  These animations were included in the final art installation as both digital projections and as part of an interactive component where visitors could 'remix' the animated cycles using an iPad controller. With the help of artist Christopher Brannan, I also constructed a 16-foot diameter geodesic dome with custom-mapped projection to invite viewers to physically immerse themselves in a 180-degree artwork. #HampdenLights
