This video is about Found Ground, a public art installation by Erik Carlson, Erik Gould and Erica Carpenter. FOUND GROUND is composed of found, collected and remixed 8mm home-movies and text, projected large on “new-found” ground of Providence — in this case, on walls recently exposed by downtown demolition. 1950’s-70’s footage of vacation travels, roadside views and scenes of home will be projected on surfaces that reveal a co-mingling of interior and exterior finishes (bathroom tiles, wallboard, bare brick, doorways) as part of a project that seeks to explore how we as Americans discover, imagine, inhabit, consume and lose the known spaces around us. With its homemade images, FOUND GROUND looks at the broad American landscape through the lens of some of our most intimate cultural ideals (home, family, travel, leisure), with an eye toward establishing new ground for thinking about, and living in, the built and natural spaces we hold among us.
