Jayson P. Smith performs in conjunction with The Vanderbilt Republic's camera obscura, built specifically to highlight Keith Haring's ONCE UPON A TIME (completed months before Haring's death at 31). VR's site-responsive installation joins key historical moments with every object that bypasses 13th Street field of view—blending the seam between cultural legacy and contemporary moment.
