The SKYBRIDGE ART AND SOUND SPACE at Eugene Lang College is pleased to present an interactive installation by David Connolly,

 

17 º 42’ 0” N

97 º 49’ 0” W

41º 5’ 0” N

87 º 39’ 0” W

The concept of the show was inspired by the story of Jimmy, an immigrant who like so many others left his small village 30 years ago in Tezoatlán de Segura y Luna, Oaxaca and crossed the border into the United States of America, heading to Chicago.

 

The installation addresses the issue of increased surveillance and sensory technology used in our society, to track, scan and scrutinize individuals, an experience Jimmy endured while being transported in the trunk of a car and walking under darkness in the desert, often relying solely on the sense of hearing.

 

This exhibition offers an interactive sensory experience encompassing the visitor when crossing the footbridge from either entry or exit points, while being surveyed.

 

 

Funding for 17 º 42’ 0” N - 97 º 49’ 0” W / 41º 5’ 0” N - 87 º 39’ 0” W has been provided by Eugene Lang College/The New School for Liberal Arts.
