24th Street Listening Project and Laguna Yellow – Brava Theater – Elastic City

Lynn Marie Kirby and Alexis Petty shifted their listening practice from these single sites to the larger structure of the block, a circle that is formed by neighboring buildings, and had noted, while walking these blocks, specific echoes, both present and virtual, in the landscape. The project culminated with the launch event at the Brava Theater.  The event began with Laguna Yellow an Elastic City sponsored walk of the five block site. Lynn and Alexis led participants in a meditation on the place of color in the neighborhood, as pigment, as light, and as history. The presentation at the Brava included a community color mapping video, songs by a local musician, and stories from the neighborhood. A reception and Book signing followed. -2012
