Many Faces of Philadelphia
by Joseff Filamor
Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia is building an expanded archive of cultural memory that includes multiple histories, re-place-ing the established with new narratives and understandings. Notes consider place via the street, sound, food, trees, and other portals.
In partnership with educator Joshua Block, students from Philadelphia's Science Leadership Academy are creating and publishing their Philadelphia Field Notes. Joseff Filamor created a video highlighting different Philadelphia neighborhoods.
The beautiful thing about Philadelphia is the many different neighborhoods it has. While almost every neighborhood is different in some way, they're all connected within the Philadelphia community. I had the idea of producing a short video that showcased just a few of the neighborhoods around me and notes the similarities or dissimilarities between them.
