    The block I live on and grew up on in Downers Grove, IL has begun to watch movies together. We had our first night tonight. I witnessed neighbors meeting each other, people laughing, showing respect and appreciation for each other and getting closer to each other. It was a great night of continuations of old relationships and beginnings of others.

      The inspiration to make this piece after seeing LaToya Ruby Frazier photography and video work that examined the effects of her environment on herself, her family and her community. This got me thinking about how my environment I grew up in, Downers Grove (A suburb of Chicago) shaped me. After moving to Chicago six years ago for college and moving back this past fall after breaking up with my partner of 4 years, I came home with the intention of digging into my hometown through the camera lens. As I started with the goal of answering the question of how my self worth reflected my childhood home and the homes in Downers Grove using only a few clips and voiceover, it grew into a piece that used media from all over that helped me put my environment into the actual video as I unpacked my perception. It also grew into a tool I hope to use to continue the dialogue around these issues with everyone, but specifically those who have a similar story as me because we rarely critically talk about these issues with each other. It really opened up new dialogue within myself that I was avoiding or couldn't find through my art for a long time while living in the city. I was trying to talk about these issues while taking myself out of the picture, but with help from friends I realized this isn't effective or productive. This video attempts to be more than just an acknowledgement of my privilege but a call for responsibility, action and sacrifice as well as a challenge to our dependency on and attachment to White Supremacy, the system that privileges us white people. I would appreciate feedback on how you feel well I completed that goal. If you choose to use this video anywhere please simply let me know because I would like to know where it is being shown. If you are interested in doing a screening please contact me and we can possibly set up a workshop with it. Please email me at tomcallahan89@gmail.com for those things and any other questions, concerns, feedback. Thanks Tom Callahan

            A preview of the current work in progress of mine documenting stories and visuals of the Northside Redline. In the CTA environment, we often go through our transit without interacting, talking to or even acknowledging the people around us. By documenting people's stories I hope to bring people into touch with other people's experience and inspire them to break down the barrier we have between each other as we go to and from wherever we may be going.

                The world around us is an overwhelmingly sterilized, controlled, advertizement saturated, on our smartphones the whole damn day place. Don't listen to the robot telling you to tell the authorities when you see something deviate out of what that same robot told you was "Ok." Enjoy humanity around you before it's too late. Enjoy
