Home/Resilience is an interactive and experiential social documentary installation and a story of and tribute to the last two 90-year old residents of the 144-year old St. Mark’s Home for Women in Augusta, Maine. The site-specific installation will be created in the historic Augusta Colonial Theater, which closed in 1969, and is undergoing revitalization. Through the stories and voices of Ruth and Nona, Home/Resilience raises questions and inspires conversations about wisdom and aging – offering insights about the social and physical structures that help shape our notions of ‘home.’ Beyond a traditional documentary film, photography show, or radio story, participants experience Home/Resilience by walking into a multi-storyline and immersive installation revolving around Ruth and Nona, dynamic women that represent aging Americans, issues of isolation and the importance of community in sustaining life. As part of the installation, the short documentary film A Home for Women (by Kate Kaminski, Betsy Carson and Caroline Losneck) will be screened on a front porch microcinema.
