Transfer-mation, colloborative installation and performance at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids, Michigan, December 7-January 18, 2007

The Moving Crew is an amorphous collective working to enlarge and enliven the public sphere. In the exhibition Transfer-mation, curator and Moving Crew member Jeremy Chen walked 12 miles of Division Avenue with Joe Arens and Karis Medina, taking a snapshot of the horizon every 20 steps. He then created Walking Division, a slideshow video from the 899 photos. Chen sent Moving Crew members the DVD and/or youtube video link.  Members from as near as Grand Rapids and as far as Croatia responded with artwork or raw materials that were then transformed into the installation. Members gathered over two weekends to collaborate on the exhibition's form and content.
