Performance artist and sculptor Pope.L will present a performance and video installation entitled Blink at Prospect.2 New Orleans, the second edition of the international contemporary art biennial. For the work, the artist asked New Orleans residents to donate photos of themselves in response to the questions: "When you dream of New Orleans, what do you dream of? When you wake up in the morning, what do you see?" These donated images will be part of a video installation mounted on a truck – a modern, traveling version of a “magic lantern” projection – that will traverse the city of New Orleans from sundown on October 22, 2011 through sunrise the following day. The video, intended to be a collective “memory bank” of the residents of New Orleans, will be stationed at Xavier University's Art Village following the performance for the duration of the biennial.
