Dream Catcher for Building #13
The Dream Catcher is a three-part installation at 36 Manton Avenue in Providence, RI. In the first part, a room was built with salvaged materials inside of the factory and the window was converted into projection space. This projection in the glass spoke to the current derelict state of the factory. In the second part, former occupants walked through the site narrating their experience of living in the structure and modifying it to suit their purposes; i.e. how they reorganized the building to create new forms of housing and collectivity. This projection was transposed to Brown University (video forthcoming). During the campaign, the group kept a record of their impressions of the building's former inhabitants, as well as how the current state of the factory spoke to the state of American Economy (video forthcoming).
