Containers, Seaports, Sekula


Allan Sekula and Noël Burch, still from The Forgotten Space (2010).




After spending a summer writing about seaports and shipping containers, I'm bookmarking this article on Rhizome. http://rhizome.org/editorial/2014/aug/14/containers/

Interested to find out more...expat ladies, email me at jdietrick@gmail if you have any stories about ports, shipments, or your employers—anything that relates to global trade. It's for a 2015 summer project at MoCA Jacksonville's Project Atrium and a larger series. Past project documented by the extraordinary Sarah Emerson here: https://vimeo.com/71907184
