Conversation Station


Conversation Station is an open structure for investigating culture on a personal scale in public places. The Stations are informal sites that I set up in various locations to invite passers-by to talk with me about often uncomfortable subjects including the fact that people die and what it means to be a part of the United States. The conversations use ordinary interpersonal interaction to investigate possibilities of public dialogue, explore social dynamics, and question who we are to each other as strangers and as members of our common society. Exhibited at apexart, New York, NY as part of The Incidental Person show and at the New Video Gallery in Portland, OR in 2010 as well as showing up in public places across Oregon and in NYC.
