A dystopian visual narrative, deviltown is an installation that combines photography, film, and sound to blur the lines between gallery and public space. Situated on six screens located in downtown Atlanta, projected video overwhelms the audience with a set of surrealist-inspired images. The visual scenes comment on the phenomenology of sight and perception as well as the place and space one occupies. These interwoven images emphasize the extent to which our lives and our awareness of the world is divided and segmented both to reveal and challenge our own reality.
