American cemeteries of the nineteenth century served a similar purpose to today’s public parks, as they once saw visitors picnicking on the grass, strolling down meandering paths, and socializing together as families. In the last century, however, these spaces have become more utilitarian in nature and often lack public engagement beyond funerals and grieving. Graveyard Shift, a collaboration between Green-Wood and Pioneer Works, proposes a new way of interacting with the space of the Cemetery by activating it through sight, sound, and movement.
