Coney Island Outside In (2016)
"Half slummy neighbourhood with the skeleton of a fairground, half sunny seaside resort with a peach of a boardwalk, Coney Island is redolent with other peoples memories."
This was a return visit to Coney Island renting the same apartment to continue a project about City to Sea. Feelings of insecurity and an inability to read the local social landscape, as a white middle class female, continued to make 'vulnerable' the invisible hash tag. The wrong place, the wrong time is all it needs in an environment with a heavy gun culture, and where shootings are sadly frequent and people are rightly angry. The fire escape and an old fashioned air conditioner were not a comfort as it felt no more secure in the apartment than out.
