Greenpants gave an illuminated tour of Baltimore's West Side, in partnership with the Baltimore Heritage Society, on May 19, 2012. Using building-sized light and video projections during the tour, the group animated several historic sites along Howard Street, as well as sites whose stories have been washed over. This Luminous Intervention project responded to the choices made by the city to employ a kind of “urban renewal” that is unhealthy, unsustainable and inhospitable to its residents. It reflected on stories from residents, workers, preservationists, and business owners impacted by the proposed “Superblock” plan to demolish and develop a significant area in West Baltimore. How do large scale development plans like this one affect the city and its residents?
