North South Portland is a place-based, non-fiction research project created in collaboration with Sarah Baugh and Justin Flood. It was installed at Field Work from December 6, 2010 to January 16, 2011.

North South Portland explores the effects of urban renewal on the South Portland neighborhood, in the form of public window installations, events, workshops, screenings and lectures.

North South Portland aims to generate interest in the area surrounding the Field Work space through the exploration of urban history and neighborhood conversation. Through direct engagement with neighborhood residents, Portland State University students, urban scholars and oral historians, the project hopes to build a sense of hyper-local identity and open a dialogue about contemporary issues surrounding land-use planning, public policy, and neighborhood engagement.
