Whitnall part2 v1

  1. 1. WHITNALL UTILITY CORRIDOR
  2. 2. Had this tunnel been built it would be thelongest highway tunnel in California, andeven today would rank as the third longesthighway tunnel in the USA!
  3. 3. Despite the existence of the power lines,the Whitnall Parkway/Freeway continued toappear on proposed freeway maps wellinto the 1960s.
  4. 4. The current Whitnall Highway is an unusualconfiguration of wide residential streets,sometimes with a broad center stripconverted into a park-like setting.
  5. 5. In other places Whitnall Highway disappearsinto undeveloped lots only to reappear aquarter mile away for non-residential uses,most often as a park or nursery.
  6. 6. In 1990, the EPA recommended that low-frequency EMFs be considered a class Bcarcinogen, like radon (a radioactive gas).
  7. 7. Some investigators believe that disturbances inthe local EMF field are a direct indication ofghost activity.
  8. 8. NEVER WAS
  9. 9. The Welcome EventThe seven day festival uses the length of the Whitnall Utility Corridor to facilitate sitespecific performances. Each of these performances will occur during a specific time in theevening and in succession move the audience across the corridor.The first event will first unite the all areas of the corridor by remarking the originalfootprint. The next 6 days will occur in selected spaces for their physical characteristics:green nursery, urban parks with limited activity, parking for car inventory, and empty lotswith minimal or no vegetation. Each of these events will be performances that will usethese aspects of open space and EMF to reveal unexpected uses.
  10. 10. How does this expose an in-between space?The series of events exposes its historical background, celebrates hidden dimensionsof urban planning and electrical magnetic fields, and questions the future potentials forthe space.
  11. 11. What is the dialogue?Public utilities and the spaces they occupy are not intended primarily for public recreationor as even a common space for communities to share. These are support spaces for thecity’s infrastructure, the electrical skeleton turned inside out.The Whitnall Corridor cannot be masked- it is on constant display in X,Y, and Z. The airbetween the towers, their wires and the ground is the Z-axis leftovers. You can walk ortravel between these areas, but find yourself limited due unexpected consequences(metallic balloons hitting wires, narrow greenspaces, and roadways that dissect andsurround nearly every area of the corridor).Since they were never intended to be public commons, but end up being that state insome cases, are they other land uses beside open space?
  12. 12. How do you capture the dialog?The seven day process will be documented in film and video through aerial photographyand audience submitted video.
  13. 13. BLOSSOM
  14. 14. STEP ONEBlossoms are packed in nets that will be placed in thenegative spaces provided by the towers
  15. 15. STEP TWOIn series, the flower blossoms are released from the towersfrom the North to the South.
  16. 16. STEP THREERemarking the original footprint of the proposed highwayand connecting the disparate islands together, the blossomsunify the communities surrounding the corridor.
  17. 17. HERD
  18. 18. STEP ONEClusters of prism structures that house the herd will be placed inthe negative spaces provided by the towers
  19. 19. STEP TWOA herd of metal sculptures emerge from the towers,becoming performance spaces for dancers to interact with.
  20. 20. STEP THREEStarting from two locations, the herd migrates in bothdirections each subsequent night to be accessible to thecommunities surrounding the corridor.
  21. 21. CLOUD
  22. 22. STEP ONEDeflated structures that house lights activated by the areaelectromagnetic fields will be placed in the open field provided bythe towers.
  23. 23. STEP TWOA parade of balloons held by neighbors fills the park-
  24. 24. STEP THREEThe parade of blimps become an Electro Magical Field of lightsfloating below the power lines in a state of constant anxiety.
  25. 25. THANK YOU !!!
