Transforming Space – The Gates Factory – Part 1

December 20, 2007

This video/audio exploration is entitled Transforming Space and currently consists of three parts. This project documents the Gates Factory demolition in Denver and attempts to present or question issues of urban development, architectural memory and historic preservation. This is very much in progress and eventually 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. He explains feeling torn between progress and his own history (part 1). I continue by speaking with an artist who finds inspiration from this space (part 2). I conclude the piece by showing the demolition of the southern building (part 3).
