Urban Trapeze

'Urban Trapeze (2010),' also known as 'GeoGym,' was a project created as part of a fundraising event, in collaboration with LACMA and filmmaker Burke Roberts, to raise money for an up-and-coming new artists gallery and venue in Silverlake called 'The Department of Flying Vehicles.'  This 16' x 16', 'urban trapeze playground' was a joint project created by Otis student Jackie Monique Perez and her friends Alexis Branger and Michael Rooster Uphoff.  The project ultimately led to the creation of a creative artist's collective known as 'Undus Mundus.'
