TACT: BRINGING AMERICA CLOSER TO UNFAMILIAR PLACES
As part of my research essay “My Home is Your Playground”, I created a conceptual initiative that aimed to challenge the paradigm of power relationships that are most evident in my neighborhood between two parallel streets – Mission Street and Valencia Street (25th and 14th streets). The initiative is entitled The Agency of Community Tours (TACT), and it is a temporary agency (as action/live/installation art project), that intends to conduct a social campaign entitled Bringing America Closer to Unfamiliar Places.
Through this conceptual project, my main goal was to open the possibilities of these two distinct geographical locations into a place that ultimately can bring recognition and a sense of understanding from the people on “both sides of the fence”.
