Notes on Territory: Meditation 1 is a site for audiences to research and reflect on the intersecting histories of abolition, architecture, and containment. Built to the same dimensions as the attic Harriet Jacobs’ lived in for 7 years on her journey from slavery to freedom (7’x9’x3’) with wood from the oldest Chicago housing project (Lathrop Homes), this crawl space is a lounge, a library, and a site of intermittent durational performances. Made in collaboration with Emily Winter / The Weaving Mill, Sofía Córdova, and Giau Truong. The Roman Susan installation was activated with performances from Lynn Hunter and Jay Carlon.
