Axis Alley Baltimore
Axis Alley seeks through creative engagement to utilize the backyards of vacant properties and vacant lots as a canvas for creative works that transform, activate and revitalize the overlooked, under-attended areas of Baltimore’s back alleys. Doherty explores the intersections of art, architecture, urban spaces and technology through installation art and urban intervention projects. Installation works have combined sculptural materials, with video, computer controlled media and light to explore experiential and participatory art. Her urban interventions explore the intersections of creative agency and strategies of place making. The use of 21 city owned vacant properties as part of Axis Alley Baltimore transformed a blighted and dangerous alley into a venue of art for numerous artists, which was awarded selection in the 2010 Public Art Network Year in Review.
