CaLL Walk: Living Boundaries
May 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Lake Roland: Living Boundaries explores the scientific, artistic and social principles of absorption at Lake Roland, a defunct reservoir surrounded by parkland at the edge of Baltimore City. Artist Miguel Braceli seeks to approach the different boundaries and access that exist between the city, its inhabitants and the environment. This work uses food grade paper, benign particulates and water to interrogate the concepts of absorption and particulate suspension, within the social context of racial and social segregation. From an ecological perspective this project seeks to approximate the forms of land use and its consequences on the environment, specifically, the relationships between people, land, and water, and addresses increases in sea levels, floods, and discharge of waste into the water. From an urban and social perspective, he explores problems related to social segregation and exclusionary practices. Socially and environmentally, the work explores these boundaries in constant transformation, and that this project aims to continue moving.
