About the Project


Michael Dax Iacovone is an artist and a teacher. He holds a BS in Photography and Art Education from the State University of NY, and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. He has exhibited his work in Baltimore, MD; Brooklyn, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Sarajevo, Bosnia, St.Louis, MO; and Washington, DC. Mike has lived in Washington DC since 1999 but misses his voting rights. He has walked through every square mile of the city, and regardless of where you ask him about, he will always reply "It's really not that far."

Billy Friebele lives and works in Washington, DC. He received an MFA in Studio Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Billy has exhibited in Baltimore, MD; New York, NY; Colorado; St. Louis, MO; Detroit, MI and Washington, DC among other places. Friebele’s work examines the intersection of new media and public space. He teaches as an Assistant Professor of Digital Media at St. Mary's College of Maryland.

The space of Washington DC was created from a 10 mile x 10 mile square of land from Virginia and Maryland. The space is composed of government buildings, businesses, and domestic dwellings. What's left over is the public space of parks, streets, and sidewalks. This is a crowd sourced public archive of that free space.
