Tacit Knowledge reflects upon the built environment of Phoenix, Arizona through the use of digital media. Comprised of audio and video captured during the Futurescapes walking tour led by members of the Arizona State University Center for Nanotechnology in Society, the work examines issues of transportation, water and energy use, and cultural exchange through the process of looking and listening.
