This photographic and audio piece brings to Socrates the story of the defunct Presidents Park in Virginia that local businessman Howard Hankins relocated to his property. Visitors are invited to treat the work as a kind of theatrical stage where one can stand next to an image of past presidents, take selfies, and examine oneself in relation to these dilapidated yet steadfast symbolic monuments. Please listen to the audio narrative on your phone by using a QR scanner or downloading a QR scanner app. You can also listen at
