The suburban neighborhood that is presented in my documentary style project was built in the late 1950's and has several abandoned spaces throughout the approximate four square mile neighborhood. My childhood home is within this neighborhood and I have resided there the majority of my adult life. In 2017, I began to observe and document the neighborhood, which has not rebounded from the 2008 American housing crisis and recession.
Sight, Sound, Suburbia does not depict the perfect stereotypical sights associated with the American suburbs, but a neighborhood affected by transitions of the national economy and a change in the local labor culture. This project is still in production and my visual imagery, suburban sound collection, and walking observational audio fieldwork will culminate in an upcoming film.
