Project Row Houses – University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern Fellowship


As one of two inaugural Social Practice fellows at Project Row Houses-University of Houston College of the Arts, I developed a research project looking at the relationship between policing, gentrification, and capital in 7 different U.S. cities. My fellowship culminated in the following:

  • A user-generated surveillance and mapping of police presence in the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of Vickery Meadow where I lived.
  • A publication mapping the relationship between capital and real estate development based on conversations with artists, urbanists, and activists in 7 different U.S. cities. Download here.
  • A performative lecture in which I practiced tai chi, the art of preparing for an invisible enemy, to an audio track musing about power, capital, and opacity.
