6:30-7PM Happy Hour Reception
7-9PM Video Installation (with artist present)
The Oak Room by Deepwood -511 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215


City Walks documents specific locations based on wellness statistic from the point of view of the body that moves through them. The video installation compiles the chaotic places that we live, eat, walk, drive, and work. The static buildings and sculptures bend and twist and vibrate with the motion that usually surrounds them while a cacophony of city overtures accompany the chaos.
The installation will feature 5 screens displaying walks through 8 cities.
