We must learn to see, to hear the places that are hidden. We must travel to the southernmost tip of the city to a forgotten place that holds the detritus of our rise and fall.

Professor Steve Bradley's intermedia artwork, Place Immersion, is included in the Oasis Places exhibition curated by Jeremy Sterns for Maryland Art Place, in Baltimore City. The opening is May 9th from 6-9 PM, with an earlier panel discussion from 6-7 PM.

Place Immersion reframes an industrialized community in Baltimore City called Greater Baybrook by homaging the lost neighborhood and its remnants of material culture, including photographic travel archives and field recordings of voices, stories and sounds of the existing place. The writings of Dr. Nicole King punctuate the transitional spirit of the community so similar to other industrialized places in the world.

This hybrid and comprehensive website, makes its debut for this opening. The UMBC Imaging Research Center funded a 2010 summer fellowship for the research and design of this collaboration project that Professor Nicole King, American Studies, UMBC and I have continued to work on for several years in the neighborhoods of Brooklyn-Curtis Bay, Baltimore City.
