The East Side Railway Tunnel is an abondoned underground infrastructure between Benefit Street and Seekonk River in Providence. Now it is a relic of time, a journey where the ways we experience our surroundings flip. As the tunnel is packed with its own histories, it can be generously experienced as a meditative journey to the self.
We decided to legitimize the myth around the tunnel by providing a set of ephemera that brings the experience to alternative audiences.
While the suit and the boots are necessary apparel in the tunnel, the map condenses personal experiences, histories, and mappings to a single narrative as a preperation to the journey. The takeaway posters from the installation keep the urban legend in flux.
