Some documentation from Portland Sunday Parkways - June 22nd, 2008
On June 22nd, 6 miles of road in North Portland were blocked off to car traffic allowing pedestrians and cyclists to stroll and enjoy festivities in the surrounding parks and neighborhoods. It was great!!!

Video documentation of a video installation titled "Come on baby, Let's do The Twist!".
"Come on Baby, Let's do The Twist!" is a portrait of the dance craze that exploded after the introduction of the song, The Twist, in the 1960's by rock and roll singer, Chubby Checker.
The installation is located in darkened a corner and is composed of a sheet hanging from the ceiling. The sheet is hung above a mock checkered dance floor and displays a projected video constructed from 1960’s footage of both Chubby Checker and crowds dancing The Twist.
