DOWNTOWN HOLIDAY STROLL

This piece was commissioned by the Austin Art Alliance back in 2012. It involved several projections and installations at multiple sites along Congress Avenue in downtown Austin. I served both as video producer and curator, bringing fellow video artists into the project. For my installations, I imagined the holiday traditions of an alternate universe. I speculated about the belief system and mythology, the rituals, the seasonal weather and even more prosaic activities (like the last minute rush to ship off presents).

The event provided an opportunity to experiment with site-specific graphics and sound, utilize higher-powered projectors and to observe (anonymously) immediate feedback from the public. I made this short documentation video from footage I shot while I was managing the install during the course of the night.
