Oakland, CA

January 13th, 2001

Open research lab. A dance for the camera event. A waiting score along the empty train platforms.  The station is grand and decrepid, from an era when trains were important.

A rope swing hangs from the ceiling now and there is evidence of many visitors.  The station was later used as a video location for hip hop artist E-40’s video for the song Tell Me When To Go in 2006.

Performers in white: Heather Pierce, Laura Podowski, Lawrenzo Share, Lea Bender, Mandy Snyder, Margot Lystra, Olive Bieringa, Otto Ramstad, Rafael Cohen, Rosemary Hannon, Shelly Smith, Steven Kessler
