You Are Here, 2021
Coral Gables Museum
As a permanent digital arts faculty member of the Art & Art History Department at FIU, Jonathan along with undergraduate and graduate students Jennifer Hudock, Heather Kostrna, L’nique Noel, Maria Daniela Maldonado, Tara Remmen, Ari Temkin, Emily Silverio-Williams will create an ambitious project on the side of the Coral Gables Museum building. Department chair, David Chang, created a course specifically for Jonathan to teach with a focus on realizing an inclusive and historical look at the City for Illuminate Coral Gables. The beauty of this special course is that the students will have professional exhibition history, something extremely rare as an undergraduate or graduate art student.
The building facade will come alive through the use of video mapping and sound elements representing the entangled connections between history, geology, ecology, and climate. This installation will be heartfelt, relevant, and another time capsule for the City to treasure. It will be accessible online with raw content and in the final edited and projected version.
