I have created a work that brings Jane Jacobs’ words directly to the sidewalk. Hearing these excerpts while walking in Washington DC added a new vantage point to understand her text. This audio walk invited people to walk and listen. I placed 5 audio recordings around the vicinity of the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Each are marked with a distinct branding that people found out on the street using a smartphone and a QR decoder application. Narration by WYPR-Baltimore radio producer, Aaron Henkin.
