Image, Sound and Text by Alvaro Torres and Daniel Perera.
The places we notice in passing are sites where social hierarchies manifest and interact. In the realm of the visible, only some people are enables to remain unseen, to choose who to see and when. Aesthetics is not how the world is presented to us but rather how it is pre-established for us; what Jacques Ranciere calls 'the distribution of the sensible.' What would emerge if we explored an ordinary stretch of sidewalk in the East Side of Austin, Texas, USA for a period of several months?

It is a sensuous ethnography, a confrontation, and a poem.
