Baggage is a character-driven installation exploring memory, lineage, and familial responsibility. Is it possible to seek answers from the past without neglecting the present?
Baggage was a component of No Vacancy, an summer-long interactive arts program held at C3 Lab in Charlotte, North Carolina. Visitors entered a mock mid-century motel in which four different rooms held fully interactive art installations. Visitors were encouraged to touch the work and leave their imprint upon the space. The "motel" was host to a variety of events including music, poetry, dance, video installation, and theatre. Performing artists were asked to respond to the installations in each room or incorporate the spaces into their performances.
