The Climb, 54 Jefferson

Melanie Manos's avatar Melanie Manos

The Climb, 54 Jefferson is a site-specific video projection on the outside front wall of Site:Lab. The projected video features a woman (Manos) endeavoring to find her way up, across, and into the the former Grand Rapids Public Museum. The work offers an existential loop of human effort that teeters between absurdity and heroics. Will she make it?? The projection can be seen each night of Artprize starting at dusk, and runs on a continuous loop.
