This is the Black Box.

A mixed media piece about the current conversation around police, violence and race.

We took the idea of camera phones as citizen journalism and flipped it: the media story within the box can only be captured and seen with your phone-- much like after a plane disaster, we look to the black box for truth.

Upon entering the room, you heard and saw a visualization of John Coltrane's "Alabama." However, an XBOX Kinect triggers actual camera phone audio from police incidents as you place your phone into the box, creating new and confrontational context to this well known protest song.
