This is a meditation on the history of human displacement and real-estate covenants used to exclude specific ethnic groups. in Seattle over the past 130 years or so. This is a four-screen video – meant to be shown in a gallery setting on 4 large monitors. It is hoped that the viewer will experience the patterns and rhythms of the interplay between the 4 screens as part of its ‘musicality’.
