" My Hands were Busy, My Mind could Wander":Creative Economies on the Charles River

In collaboration with the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation , students in Prof. Mark Auslander's "Museums and Public Memory" (Anth 159a) at Brandeis University have developed a digital projection project as part of the Boston CyberArts festival. The project traces memories and engagements with the Charles River dating back to the industrial revolution, playing with the symbolism of running water, human imagination and the labor of human hands. The work is projected on the Moody Street waterfall, an originating site of the American Industrial Revolution and features footage drawn from diverse aspects of the "creative economies" that have emerged along the Charles River, including the labor of textile workers, watchmakers, bicycle designers and artists. The work is projected on the waterfall as a triptych, allowing for the simultaneous exploration of different moments in time, history and memory along the changing riverscape.
Our title, "
My hands were busy/my mind could wander,"
is taken from an interview with Barbara Zeles. artist in the Waltham community, incorporated into the video projection.
A draft version of the video is on YouTube
