We Came, We Saw, We Commuted.

Last November, after the release of our 30-minute documentary, SEE / LINE (available at Sankofa Video Books & Cafe, 2714 Georgia Ave, NW, Washington, D.C.), The Red Line D.C. Project celebrated it’s last days.

In the new year, director/producer Saaret Yoseph began a fellowship with Docs in Progress, in Silver Spring, and has turned her attention toward the next labor of love, a documentary about the Ethiopian Diaspora’s complex relationship with “home.”

But, before we officially say goodbye to Red Line D.C. and all things graffiti, it’s only fitting that we find the project a good home!

Google Street Art has adopted some of the unused and under-utilized content from the documentary project, adding Red Line D.C. to their expansive collection of digital art.

It’s a relief to know that all the work we spent 4+ years documenting and discussing will get an extended life in this new, online exhibition space.

Many of the graffiti names and ephemeral pieces that we’ve captured over the years, have been added to Google’s Street Art map, so that our very small, site-specific conversation can be exposed to a much larger, global audience.

We couldn’t be prouder of how the project has turned out. And, though, it’s always hard to say goodbye, it’s comforting to know that we’re only a Google away!

Here’s to the next big adventure! Until then, find us here on Street Art, and follow the progress of Saaret’s next documentary via Twitter.
