Ourself is a site-specific, responsive artwork that shares the positive inner voices of Camden. By entering the work the public activates audio clips of personal interviews with local residents from all walks of life, around the theme of motivation and ambition. The infinite mirrored space symbolizes the many voices of the community that define our story and ourselves.
Ourself is produced by New American Public Art and Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, in partnership with NextFab, the City of Camden, Connect the Lots, and Get Healthy Camden. The work is generously funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Kresge Foundation, and the Campbell Soup Foundation.
