SiteLines was a multimedia collection of online videos, experimental walking tours and an immersive art installation that was presented by ICA Baltimore at Current Space featuring banners, photography, typography and cartography derived from nearby invisible public spaces. The ongoing New Public Sites project interprets the overlooked and invisible sites within cities, investigates the negotiable nature of public space, and pushes the boundaries of pedestrian agency. Sitelines started in September 2014 with four New Public Sites walking tours: Crossing the Highway to Nowhere, Reservoir Chill, Old Town Walking Revival and Power Plant Alive! These tours were videod for series on the New Public Sites YouTube series capturing the artist and walking tour participants as they playfully explore public space while he shares the sites’ histories, design, and uses. These collections of new public sites are connected by suburban style development in an urban context, including freeways and pedestrian malls. Videos from these walks were incorporated into a larger installation of related banners, photography, typography, found object sculptures and a gallery-size map at Baltimore’s Current Space. During the course of the three week exhibition, Coreil-Allen will also led two walking tours in collaboration, a redux of Crossing the Highway to Nowhere, and a tour designed in response to the Baltimore Uprising: Wandering Shards of Spector Riches.
