Dare to Remember: A Digital Memorial of Black Brooklyn re-envisions ways to represent black histories after erasure, disappearance, and silencing. I explore how we memorialize our presence without replicating traditional means of commemoration (museums, street signs, neighborhood names, etc.) by paying respect to silence as a champion of our lives and an integral piece of black history. I use GIS mapping, a photo series, and virtual reality to create this immersive, digital, commemorative experience and to emphasize the importance of memory and transgenerational silence to Brooklyn’s black community.
