"The Cubberley Project," a temporary audio-visual installation by the Cubberley Artist Studio Program's Martha Sakellariou and writer Jennifer Lee, is currently on display at Cubberley Community Center (4000 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto). The project, which was the winner of March's "Cubberley Stock" micro-grant event organized by the Palo Alto Public Art Program, features portraits, quotes and stories collected mid-May to early June from 59 members of the Cubberley community representing around 15 campus organizations, according to data from the Palo Alto Public Art Program.
"Cubberley is like home for me. I raised my children here. As a dancer I am grateful every day for this space and I love that it is not posh it's real. It's accessible," states one quote, from Dance Vision's Lisa Navarro.
Sakellariou and Lee created their own homemade recipe of wheat paste, which they used to attach paper photography prints to the exterior walls around the campus (approximately 416 feet of black-and-white images and text were printed). Audio (compiled from 10 hours of interviews, soundscapes and conversations) is installed at three locations and plays through small portable speakers, available through June 21, Monday to Friday 5-7 p.m., and weekends from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The full project is expected to remain on display for several weeks into the summer.
