Exploring Sawyer Yards
“Exploring Sawyer Yards” is a multi-video installation commissioned for the entry foyer of Arthouse, an apartment building in Houston’s Sawyer Yards neighborhood, by Greystar, a real estate investment and development firm. This work focuses on the industrial neighborhood surrounded by freight train activity, art studios, and a converted grain silo factory. I spent over a year and a half creating this site-specific work in which I explore the neighborhood and capture the aurora of its past history and creativity of its current residents.
Three projectors mounted to the ceiling reveal the synchronized videos spanning approximately 30 feet wide by 9 feet high onto the building’s main entrance wall. Glass windows reveal the video to viewers on the sidewalk and street. The projection appears daily from 9 am to 9 pm.
