Inside Out Video Documentation
The INSIDE OUT Project collected autobiographical phrases from Richmond, CA residents and turned them into six story tall, night-time video projections on the outside walls of Richmond City Hall. The project was censored by the city for including Spanish language phrases critical of President Trump's immigration policies. Richmond, CA is one of the most racially and socioeconomically diverse cities in California, with 1/3 of its residents foreign born. 1,000 phrases were submitted in multiple languages through free, in-person community workshops and the project's online website.
