Transforming Space Statement
November 19, 2007
This is a short 3.5 minute summary and critique of my Transforming Space project. This video/audio project documents the Gates Factory demolition in Denver and attempts to present or question issues of urban development, architectural memory and historic preservation. Eventually if I continue with the project, I would like to present many different perspectives on these complicated issues. In this first version I include interviews with a demolition employee who has a personal history with the factory and also an artist who finds inspiration from this space.
This factory is being transformed physically by demolition and redevelopment but also metaphysically through visual art.
