Light + Social Justice
How are artists exploring photography’s connection to light and time to effect social action in Pittsburgh?
In fall 2017, Pittsburgh-based artist Alisha B. Wormsley explores the connection between light and social justice through a public project that activates vacant or abandoned properties in the neighborhood of Homewood, where she manages the Homewood Artist Residency. Wormsley investigates the past, present, and future of the community by organizing and photographically documenting a series of artist-led installations. These installations, embedded in Homewood’s urban fabric, create spaces for local conversation, reflection, and engagement.
