Works By: Lee Bey, South Side Home Movie Project, Eric Hotchkiss of Made In Englewood

Calibrated Lens portrays the multi-dimensional built environment that has evolved over decades on Chicago’s South Side, and acts of resilience and relaxation cultivated by residents in these spaces, through home movies, photographs and constructed objects. Rooted in architecture, artifacts, and scenes of daily life, a history of community creativity and collective action is made visible within three vignettes. Visual narratives of South Side spaces are seen through a multi-faceted lens, with each moment referenced through objects, images and sound drawn from South Side lives.
