The ever-evolving urban class structure in cities today is a marvel.   An organism of human made design fueled by want, need and desire.  People move in and people move out in an almost automatic fashion.  We move so fast in our pursuit of climbing some ladder that we rarely take time to stop and really observe and immerse ourselves in what we have created.

FIXT POINT presents THE FOUR CORNERS

THE FOUR CORNERS is a binaural site-specific recording that took place on September 29th, 2012 animated by a team of award winning actors alongside cameos from the community.

Project Development

This docu-drama created by FIXT POINT is a melding of interviews, research and observation reflecting the rich history and contrasting social spheres represented on these diverse corners.  Throughout the development, FIXT POINT has collaborated with members of The Meeting Place, city councilor Adam Vaughan, local business owners and managers, as well as street youth / musicians.
