Spontaneous Interventions

Created for the United States Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale. Shot with only the use of web cameras, it rotated through the central gallery and could be seen moving from the main road in the Giardini. It asked twenty-five show participants to present their vision of the future American City in the style of a presidential YouTube message and also included an interview component. The video will be on view Memorial Day through Labor Day 2013 with the rest of the show at the Chicago Cultural Center.
