Representing over 200 years of immigration to Minnesota and the United States, Something Worth Remembering is an architectural video projection that will illuminate the City Center facade along Nicollet Mall, the first commercial district in Minneapolis. Overlaying historic photographs, found film, and animated data from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Immigration Statistics, this work presents the commonalities that many Americans have in ancestral migration, celebrates the significant cultural and economic impact of immigration in Minnesota and the United States, and analyzes how consumer motion picture film became a means to perform and project broader American ideals.
This project was made possible in part by the collections and support of the The University of Minnesota Immigration History Research Center Archives and the Digital Collections at The United States Library of Congress.
Tiffany Carbonneau‘s architectural video projections activate specific sites and facilitate conversations about a place’s economic and social history. Carbonneau is a 2011 Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellow, and an Assistant Professor of Fine Art at Indiana University Southeast, where she founded and heads the Digital Art and Interactive Media program.
