Los Angeles-based artist Glen Wilson’s inSITE2000 project, Interstice 2001: The Nomad Project/Intersticio 2001: El proyecto nomada consisted of a series of improvisational digital videos produced and performed at locations throughout the Los Angeles/San Diego/Tijuana region. Conceptually focused on the ideas of migration, mobility, and rhythm, Wilson filmed these sequences over the course of several months. An emphasis was put on portraying the urban and natural landscape of the region, with the individuals who live, work, and move within them. An event was organized to present projected segments of Interstice at the in(fo)SITE in San Diego on February 22, 2001, and included multiple projections, hip-hop music, and graffiti artists.
Curators: Susan Buck-Morss, Ivo Mesquita, Osvaldo Sánchez, and Sally Yard

For his INSITE97 Community Engagement project, Glen Wilson worked within the community of North Park in San Diego to film sequences of everyday life. Wilson filmed residential areas, people in the street, children waiting for the school bus, among other community scenes. You are Here/Estás aquí became a collection of short films that Wilson projected onto walls of North Park buildings two nights per week over a two-month period. The showings attracted equally spontaneous gatherings of people each night. Wilson’s project also involved an installation, a collaborative effort between the artist and community members. Sited in a local building in North Park, the installation consisted of objects from people’s homes, and poems and stories painted on the walls.
