redline redefined: brooklyn clinton by bike
October 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PDTFREE
Commissioned by Thingamajigs Redline Redefined in 2021, I created graphic scores and soundscapes from field recordings and research of the 1937 Holc maps of the historic Brooklyn and Clinton townships that intersect nearly on top of my studio. Now it’s time to hop on your bike to explore the five locations with me.
This flat route is slow-paced, family friendly, with frequent stops for a bit of history and plant identification, some deep listening, and conversation about how the red line has always been, and continues to be redefined by people, cultures, and the natural world itself.
The round trip starts at 11am from the Fruitvale BART taxi stand and will last 60-90 minutes. Bring your bike, helmet, water, and smart phone loaded with the Redline Redefined map.
Here’s my artist statement for additional context. Top of mind: I’m grateful to have joined this cohort of distinguished artists to investigate the redlines that continue to exclude East Bay people from prosperity and sustainability. A luta continua.
