Dominique Moody’s NOMAD
December 1, 2015 - December 5, 2015
The Nomad narrates Moody’s personal sojourn, her family legacy and a cultural odyssey. Its story melds life and art together as a narrative and serves as a catalyst to conversations about cultural, social, ecological and economic challenges of our times. As an architectural form, its roots have an African-Haitian origin. The Nomad trailer will be installed in CA African American Museum at the designated outdoor location, where it will be available for touring by Moody. The Nomad will arrive in the morning of Tuesday, December 1, and depart at the end of the day on Saturday, December 5.
The Nomad is built on a tandem wheeled trailer. Materials consist of wood, corrugated patinated metal, reclaimed wood, found objects, galvanized metal, polycarbonate panels, end grain plywood, natural cork. At 120 sq ft, the Nomad has a capacity for only 6 people at a time, but it has been toured by as many as 200 people at a single event. The Nomad is based in sustainability and how to find housing for all. Once on the road, it will promote human/nature interaction.
Tour Hours: Tues – Fri 10:00 am – 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Saturday 10:00 am – 12:00 noon
