Making the Installation:

All of the raw video footage used in this installation is original and was gathered either by Mara Jevera Fulmer or under her direction. This footage mostly originates from two overseas voyages to Fiji that Mara undertook with groups of her students from Mott Community College, one in July 2001 and another in June 2004. Other footage came from trips “back east” (such as the horseracing from Saratoga, NY). Additional footage was captured in early February 2005 on the north shore of Oahu, Hawai'i. And finally, raw footage from the city of Flint was also captured in February 2005 with the assistance of two of the participants from the 2001 Fiji Study tour, Walt and James.
