EXPERIENCE SPACE DIFFERENTLY
How can dance, design, and film change the way we see space?
Our human imprint and the memory of our movement linger in spaces well after we have migrated through them. The 1 Mile Radius Project explores these imprints and the unique spaces of a community through resident interviews, site-specific movement research, and interactive design.
How it started-2017
The first iteration of this work took place in Mt. Rainier Maryland in the 1 mile radius surrounding Joe's Movement Emporium, which serves as a vital community and artistic hub to the area. This project was initially kicked off in spring of 2017 as part of a NEXTLOOK Artist residency by the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and Joe's Movement Emporium. Additional support was provided by Brentwood Arts Exchange, Maryland State Arts Council, and Maryland Parks & Recreation.
MAPS & QR CODES

MAP FOR 2017-2018 MT. RAINIER 1MRP
The red markers on the map above lead you to QR CODES (as seen above). When you scan these codes using (QR APP) you will be taken to hidden websites and online content connected to the 1 MILE RADIUS PROJECT. Use this as a great way to explore new terrain or investigate the familiar spaces of your own backyard.
More often than not QR CODES will lead you to site-specific dance film content. Take a moment to watch the video and then reflect on the space around you. What about the space impacts you? Who uses this space? How does this space effect the other spaces and people around it? Let your curiosity take over and post your own questions to #1mileradiusproject
Listen & RECORD
Look for special 1MRP phones at key QR CODE locations. When you find a phone take a moment to dial in and hear music, sound, and interviews from within the 1 mile radius. If you dial the right number you can record your voice talking about your experience and we will add it to the content and archives of this years project.
