Prof. Kelly Anderson's Interactive Media Project Featured on New Platform
An interactive media project by Prof. Kelly Anderson (Film and Media Studies) and Allison Dean (MUP, Hunter College) are featured on LandofOpportunity, an experimental web platform that explores post-crisis community (re)building in America.
Anderson and Dean's piece, "In With the New, Out With the Old," allows viewers to explore a recently-redeveloped part of Downtown Brooklyn. Through a rich assortment of related videos, documents and web links, users can explore the history of the area and the policy and economic drivers of recent changes. They can also comment and read other viewers' comments.
LandofOpportunity is based in New Orleans and was funded by a major grant from the Ford Foundation.
