I Still Live Here
Who gets to live in the Bay Area? Who gets to call our cities home?
"I Still Live Here" was a site-specific installation at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
The project filmed SRO residents who had been displaced from San Francisco neighborhoods demo’ed for development, including the area where YBCA Museum now stands.
The video was filmed and installed so that Yolanda M. and Rose P. appear to reclaim their space and interact with museum visitors.
The projection overlooked YBCA's first floor, where people are usually gathered.
