Now Open Until February 2, 2011

The Skybridge Art & Sound Space is pleased to present an interactive installation by David Connolly.
The concept of the show was inspired by the story of Jimmy, an immigrant who like so many others left his small village 30 years ago in Tezoatlan de Sugura y Luna, Oaxaca and crossed the border into the United States of America, heading to Chicago.

The installation addresses the issue of increased surveillance and sensory technology used in our society to track, scan and scrutinize individuals, an experience Jimmy endured while being transported in the trunk of a car and walking under darkness in the desert, often relying solely on the sense of ‘hearing.’  This exhibition offers an interactive sensory experience encompassing the visitor when crossing the footbridge from either entry or exit points, while being surveyed.
