While in Residence
Homasi conducted a project to excavate a poetic aspect of the informative content that residents and visitors add to Google Maps to describe Breckenridge. She collected and transformed the content of reviews to poetry in order to interrupt the flow of information and facilitate a space to pause and contemplation. By doing so, she endeavored to investigate and question our virtual existence in shaping our collective perception of our surroundings in cyberspace.
