Glo: Because You Believe In Something: Interlocking Tower says
glo launches the new durational project, because you believe in something, a debate constructed as requiems, moving from one of Atlanta's historic vacant buildings to another.

Sunday, February 12
free and public

We begin with Interlocking Tower, the gate keeper of Atlanta's grand Terminus Station in Downtown Atlanta. Built in 1905 by architect P.Thorton Marye, Interlocking Tower was used to control all of the switches into Atlanta's grandest station. glo will construct the site as a doc centered space for process, mourning, and fantastical activation, aiming to highlight Atlanta's growing volume of endangered places.

The formal beginning of Sunday's Requiem to Interlocking Tower is
The Atlanta Constitution Building, 143 Alabama Street SW
At the Northwest corner of Alabama and Forsyth Streets in Downtown Atlanta. For a visual journey, the view from Mitchell St. Bridge at Elliot St. is sweet and nostalgic.



5 Points MARTA station is in the center of our starting block. Take it, exit at Broad & Alabama, look to the right, you will see glo.

There are 8-9 FREE street parking spaces directly across from the Constitution Bulding at 143 Alabama & Forsyth.

There is very expensive parking 1 block down on Alabama from the Constitution Building. For those who wish to skip the migraiton, park at the furthest south end of the lot and we will be there soon. You are about 250 feet from magical Interlocking Tower.

For those who want the all view, park for free on Elliot Street at the Mitchell St. Bridge in Castleberry Hill, and enjoy a gorgeous walk across a fantastic bridge in our city.

The Requiems:
"because you believe in something" will run through June at five like-minded spaces, including Mile 0 Atlanta and Morris Brown College campus.

Project consultant: Matthew Garbett. This project is supported by a matching grant from the Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs.


glo is a platform whose collaborative laboratory builds relationships, mixes identities and recognizes new creative possibilities through experimental works that induce vulnerability through constructed migrations of movement and community. A nomadic medium, glo's transhumance has included Creative Time, Big Boi of OutKast, Robert Spano and Atlanta Symphony, The Goat Farm, and numerous Places In Peril across the American South.
