UNC Charlotte Center City Installation
I Am/You Are is a set of interactive boxed structures covered with graffiti style calligraphy and written by the public. The words written upon the boxes are a reflection of private and public perception of self and community, influenced by the music resonating from the inside of the box. Mr. M (sound artist/DJ) will literally place himself inside of the box to construct musical mixes reflective of this fusion of the personal and universal. Externally, Dia1518 and the community will use text and drawings to meditate on these themes, sketching what he calls Mind Maps (diagrams). These conceptual diagrams chart the dichotomy of who we are from a public perspective and who we are from a private perspective. The community will be invited to scribe/diagram upon the boxes, starting with the terms “I am” or “You are”.
