In the Middle of the Way
November 18 - January 06, 2006
In the Middle of the Way, November 18, 2005-January 6, 2006, follows the nomadic existence of artist Anna Konik as she travels to various cities and joins the journeys of different homeless people she meets on her way. To create the Cleveland segment of this continual work in progress, Konik first met with service agencies, such as the West Side Catholic Center and St. Malachi Center. She discussed urban issues with professors and artists, and spent time talking with people living on the streets. The final product is a city-wide experience. After witnessing the video-installation at SPACES that follows one homeless man in Cleveland, the public was invited to visit various other sites around the city where the Berlin, Warsaw, and Moscow segments of Inthe Middle of the Way were projected onto store-front windows.
