The Key Room
2016- ongoing, permanent project at the Headlands Center for the Arts

The Key Room is a permanent multi-media installation at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Acting as a combined art installation, visitor center, and resource room,  the project is an interactive experience that ties together past and present and fact and fiction. It includes stories of past and present inhabitants of the location, including artists, soldiers, animals, and ghosts, among others, all told through text, sound, video, and objects. Keywords throughout the installation organize material and mark objects, sounds, places, and events.
