About Community Projects A key aspect of making art for me is including members of my family, neighborhood and community in my work as subjects, collaborators and active participants. Between 2010 and 2013 I created and exhibited three community projects at venues in and around Philadelphia: In Black and White, I invited friends, family and people from my neighborhood to help me make images of how black and white can be perfect complements and reflections of each other. In Eviction Proof, I was invited to create a room as part of an entire house that was trying to fight to keep its family from being evicted. I hung photos of the family with mirrors replacing each member's face and asked visitors to become part of the family by having a picture taken of their face reflected in one of the mirrors. In Mirror Hybrids I hung photos of the baristas at my neighborhood cafe in the cafe, with mirrors replacing their faces. I then invited cafe patrons to take pictures of each other reflected in the face mirrors and send them to me. I made prints of the resulting hybrid images and hung them on a big board in the cafe, adding to the show every day for a month, until the board was full.
