in court (Basketball)
Digital Video 2012 Color/silent 13.13 minutes
The piece in Court features a basketball court, where the hopes and dreams of young black men are played out, at the same time as it seems to fluctuate between a site for sport and a cage. The projection of the piece at the UVP Everson Museum venue, with its close proximity to the Onondaga County jail, takes on a special and literal resonance with the audible but invisible play of the inmates on the rooftop court of the correctional facility.
